Prainha Beach, Itacare

4.7
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.

  • One of the most beautiful landscapes of Itacare. We were going to hire a guide to do the trail, but as they were threatening us saying we were going to lose to force the hiring, resolving to go on their own. There are a few forks liable to create confusion, but in high season there's always someone coming back from the path. We got there without any major problems and the landscape is wonderful. Has only a tent selling tapioca and drinks.

  • The beach is very beautiful, well worth knowing. The mixture of the beach with the vegetation of the Atlantic forest creates a beautiful scenery. Access eh via a trail through the Woods, tranquil trail, easy, but currently eh recommended going with a local guide, q snake 30 reais per person. There are reports of thefts at the site, so be careful if you want to prudent eh go alone.
