  • Access to the beach through the trail of 20 min. Beautiful, worth the walk. There are beach bars with coconut water, tapioca, chestnuts and some beer. There is no internet and payment is the view. And the bathroom is green,;).

  • Very nice beach, but with little structure (what the better!). You take a small track (I believe 15-20 min), without great difficulty), to a beautiful beach! Ideal arrive early, because it fills. It is important to take drinks and something to snack on.

  • Access to the beach is made for easy level trail that will take you by track 3 more beaches. A lot of very wave surfer, but in perfect harmony with nature, there's a river that flows on the beach with big Freshwater prawns, which can be prepared in only commercial track stand. Reminder: ocean currents of the beach are very strong, but nothing get in the way of your sea bath, very carefully. One of the best beaches of Itacaré.
