Prainha Beach, Itacare

(4.6/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
To reach Prainha Beach, you have to navigate along a forest trail but the 30-minute trek is more than worth it for the beautiful beach at the end and the nature that you explore on your way. On arrival at the beach, you will be awestruck by the vast amount of space, not to mention the soft sand and bright blue water. Part of the appeal is certainly the lack of infrastructure; there are no gaudy umbrellas and only one bar serving refreshments. The grilled cheese on a stick is a popular choice. If you’re the surfing type, make sure you bring a board, or simply enjoy some relaxing in the sun away from the city crowds. On your way back to civilization, you can veer off the trail to wash the salt from your body in one of the natural waterfalls. Put Prainha Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Itacare vacation builder.

  • to get it you have to pick up a trail from praia da ribeira. the snake tab 20 reais per person. I went without a guide and I had no difficulty, has maps that they find on google that says the way the track. a tip is to follow a blue barrel that goes until a dam of la is quietly to follow. the walk is about 30 minutes.

  • Worth knowing the Prainha, in spite of the distance is very beautiful and preserved. The walk is quiet.

  • We had a amazing track and we had a very nice day. There's not much Beach option but to pack a lunch, it didn't hurt at all.
