If you are at Mucuge beach, it worths a 10 min walk to get there to have a tan! Because it's finest view and the beach sellers and workers provide good services, accommodation and privacy, avoiding bothering you all the moments.

We loved Pitinga. The red cliffs, the lovely beach, a river and fresh water to swim in nearby and good barracas. We recommend you go to the end to the last barraca (can't remember the name). By far the best. If you are in Arraial you must go here!

A great beach for the kiddos. Warm, calm water during low tide. Some gentle waves at high tide. The clincher were the tide pools that appeared at low tide. The kids could explore and see crabs, sand dollars, fish, and other sea life. Just be careful of the sharp spines of the sea urchins hiding between the rocks!

I love the beach activities on Brazilian Beaches. Always a barzinho or 2 where one can have a beer or a caipirinha with some mandioquinha (as a yummy snack)

Nice lounges and beautiful people. Try to avoid places with plastic chairs. There are nice beach clubs with sophiscated service and ambiance.

Lovely beach. we were in May (low season) and had a superb beach with only few Brazilians. Prices at the restaurants were reasonable and the food (Bahian dishes like Mocueca de Peixe or bobo de camarao) was delicious.

You can say Pitinga Beach is part of paradise. With the landscapes, the music, the bars makes a special atmosphere. Definitely worth the long walk fro Mcuge beach. Or you can take a minibus to a very close point if you're not a big fan of waling along amazing tropical beaches!

The best place to stay close to Arraial d'Ajuda,...View is fantastic, sea is good with interesting waves when there is wind and there are some very good "Barracas"

Good beach, near Arraial d'Ajuda. You can choose the best spot to stay. I recomend the Pitinga Mar, good food and good service right next to the beach. They have a good structure for children too.
