Prainha Beach, Itacare

Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Access is by a track, I thought we were quiet with a super cool Guide, Gean, recommend. The beach is beautiful, yields good photos and great dives. But I expected more because it is too famous.

Where to stay in Itacare

An up-and-coming holiday destination, Itacare offers a big selection of guesthouses, catering to backpackers, families with kids, and everyone else in between. This popular surf spot is great for budget-minded visitors, though the area does feature a few three- and four-star hotels appealing to travelers with slightly deeper pockets. The best way to find an economical room is to shop around once you arrive, as many establishments offer special deals rarely advertised online or at travel agencies.
