Prainha Beach, Itacare
(4.7/5 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.

  • I consider the most beautiful beach in Itacaré. Is only achieved through a trail from praia do Ribeiro. Did the trail without a guide, it wasn't hard. Then I heard reports of robberies for those who won't. If you're in a group, there's no problem.

  • The perfect experience already starts picking up the trail that starts at the praia da Ribeira that connects nature literally in the middle of the road you are faced with a beautiful waterfall and a Lake great for a shower at the end of this journey you find what in my opinion is one of the most beautiful beaches of Brazil.

  • Very nice beach! After a trail of about 40 minutes you arrive at this amazing Beach! The only point to be careful and that the concession stand not accept card, so the tourist has to make some money with him. Must make the trail with guides too, due to security.
