Prainha Beach, Itacare
(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ 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.

  • We went to the beach on the day of our arrival, afternoon. We were without a guide and despite reports of robbery, found a normal track as any other. We took a wrong way, but then we found the right track. My tip is in forks keep left and arrive at a part of the river that has a hut on the right bank, across the river by the rocks and pick up the trail that climbs a hill on the left bank of the river. There no mistake, soon will find an uncle selling coconut water and reported to him. The beach is very beautiful, and very tasty trail riding, but getting there has only one beverage tent and nothing more.

  • More or less walk from 1:00, you can call a guide or go by myself. The beach is beautiful, deserted, charming. Recommend.
