Surf, Beach & Activities

SURF & BEACHES 

Itacaré’s main attraction are its beaches and excellent surfing conditions. 
Within town you can access the 6 local beaches – Concha, Resende, Tiririca, Costa, Ribeira, Prainha – easily on foot. They are all unique and gorgeous.
Outside town (6 to 18 km) there are more stunning beaches – Jeribucaçu, Havaizinho, Engenhoca, Itacarezinho – accessed by car, bus or bicycle.

The best surf beaches are Tiririca (you can check out the wave conditions right from the pousada or your room), Engenhoca, Jeribicaçu. 

We recommend and work with 2 surf schools: meninasdomar and bspsurfadventure

At Tiririca beach various surf competitions are held during the year, from local events to national and international, 
like the MAHALO SURF ECO FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL and the PENA Northeastern Pro Surf Competition,

ACTIVITIES

The region is a prime destination for adventure trips and sports. From the most popular like rafting, and rapelling in the canyons of the Contas River, Arvorismo (tree-circuit & zipline) on top of the Atlantic Forest, to the less explored like kayaking, trekking, paragliding and diving. 

If you are less active, enjoy a boat trip on the Contas river, refresh in the numerous waterfalls or admire whales that pass by between July and November.

For those who want to get more involved with the local brazilian culture go watch some of the Capoeira and Afro-Brazilian dance shows, or even better partake in some lessons. Yoga is another option.

We live in the midst of the Atlantic Rainforest but only 7% remains!!! To know more about this richness and how to live a sustainable life visit Refugio dos Anjos, an ecological reserve and educational centre.

All this can be arranged for you here at the pousada.
