  • beautiful beach, good food, a place to enjoy a beach day and good music with some caipirinhas. loved!  more »
  • We have created an expectation about the Pitinga Beach and disappointed too much. First that if you rely on driving, you can only go by taxi or van. The vans leaving the ferry only when ' fill ', so we have to wait to have enough people to the van out. To get there, we're a little down the beach to get on Pitinga. The beach is interesting, has cliffs and a small river, but was with the high tide and it was not pretty, not inviting for a swim. I want to emphasize here the TERRIBLE CARE of CARLITO's tent. As soon as we arrived we were approached by officials from there and decided that, in turn, would take a caipirinha in that tent. As we don't like the beach, we were turning to leave, stopped at the tent and ordered the caipirinha. The tent was pretty empty, almost no one, and we sat in two chairs at a table, looking out to sea while we waited for the drink. Came the very official who attended us and said "have to snack or lunch to be able to sit". I asked: "what do you mean? I'm going to have to take the caipirinha standing if you don't ask for? " The boy insisted: "you have to ask snack or lunch. We don't believe that lack of education, of kindness, of professionalism. We send suspend caipirinha and we left, never to return. At least not on CARLITO's tent, which are very greedy and Unprofessionally. Well, to go is another problem: the vans only come out when enough people. As we were leaving early, not gathered enough people. Lucky that we got a van bringing people and coming back, then took us to the Center.

  • The beach is beautiful, the kiosks are not as expensive as the other. Few natural pools are formed when the tide is low, making it more beautiful still. But as all are not flowers, the amount of living water is great. I have been burned twice, and was at the bottom. Other people tbm were burned and were not few. So for those who have a child, I advise you stay well on edge even. Not to be a problem.

  • Very nice beach to spend the day at. More secluded than Mucugê, with less barracas (and thus prices are a little higher). When the tide is in be careful no to step on the little rocks at the beach corners.

Where to stay in Porto Seguro

Luxury hotels and beach resorts are the name of the game when it comes to accommodations in Porto Seguro, with many tourists looking to relax and enjoy the coastal atmosphere. Most of these lie a couple of miles north of the city center, pressed up against long stretches of beach. To enjoy the party scene and get close to the best things to see in Porto Seguro, stay in the narrow streets of the old town. However, if the nightlife seems a bit too intense for your taste, consider the plentiful options in Arraial d'Ajuda--a smaller, quieter town just a couple of miles to the south.
