Sao Jose Beach, Itacare

(110+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Tucked snugly into an inlet and flanked by lush, green vegetation and rolling hills, Sao Jose Beach is one of the most serenely idyllic beaches in Itacaré. With the white surf that laps gently at the beach’s pristine sand contrasting nicely with the blue ocean stretching into the distance, Sao Jose Beach creates a real sense of tropical isolation. Lay down your towel, kick off your flip-flops, and soak it all in. See Sao Jose Beach and all Itacare has to offer by arranging your trip with our Itacare itinerary builder.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches in the world in my opinion. Looks like the Prainha, the beach on the side (closest to the village of Itacaré), only it's better in several respects: 1. Is smaller, cozier, but also with the mountains with Atlantic forest and rocks on both sides and filled with Palm trees in the background, which gives the vision of paradise; 2. Has a river clear, shallow and warm at the right side for those who look for the beach (ideal to sit there for hours, as if in a hot tub, looking at the beach) or for babies and young children; 3. Is practically deserted: most of the time we went, we were alone on the beach. I just had the opportunity to meet you now, on my fifth trip to Itacaré, due to restricted access, because this time we managed to rent a house inside the Condo Villas of San Jose and just checking there to gain access. The houses there are of very high standard and most overlooks this beach is worth a lot to rent a House there instead of an Inn or hotel in Itacaré, and only go to the village at night to eat. Administrators of the houses there now schedule with local cooks (fair price) that carry ingredients and prepare the meals of local cuisine at home, if you wish. This option gave us comfort and freedom to or out of the condominium in the days when we didn't want to get out of paradise. 4. Accessibility: for those of you with children or elderly, checking in the condominium Villages of St. Joseph, you have access to this beach and can still go on the road of this condo to Prainha. Highly recommended! Just not in paragraph 1 of Itacaré because of difficult access to those who do not stay at the condo.

  • Although the beach is located within a gated community, your access is allowed for everyone, but many people find that it is not an accessible Beach, just leave the name of the gatehouse, entrance to the condominium and say you're going to visit the beach, after a 15 min walk, come to the beach with stunning views, quiet beach own to stay in peace and enjoy nature.

  • We pay 150 reais at the day use (through agency), of which 80 were reversed in consummation. Don't know if the price is the same, if we explored or no, I only know q was the best day in itacare. The guide left us and sought to drive at the end of the day. The structure of the hotel is great: swimming pool, restaurant, deck chairs, lifeguard etc. Beach paradise and deserted.
