Beautiful beach, but don't swim there
Jul 2020 • Friends
This is a small, beautiful, and often deserted beach especially during lockdown. A great place to get away from it all, read a book, do some exercise, and go for a paddle. I was advised very strongly not to go swimming there because the currents are apparently treacherous.

Relax
May 2019 • Family
Heaps of lunch options to choose from. Very friendly staff at all the cabanas we went to. Rock up, sit at a table/banana chair, stay there all day being served beverages and food, swim, hire a kayak/SUP... Do as much or as little as u like. The beach venders can come across as a bit forceful sometimes so just be polite but firm if u don't want the handmade jewelry or henna. But don't be completely closed off from them as some of the stuff is amazing! Definitely worth having the charoal-cooked cheese skewer. Also, just because of the nature of the waterway, the water can be a bit murky with some debris especially if it's just rained because it's right next to the river outlet. There are cleaner beaches but none as easy.

Lousy beach
Apr 2019 • Couples
Not enough sand, the water level is rising and the merchants are forced to build retainer walls with wood planks and sand bags. Dirty water. Too many vendors dominate the beach and you are forced to sit in one of the restaurants and consume something just to be able to be at the beach.

Nice for family
Feb 2019 • Family
It's a really nice beach for anyone that is with family kids. It's the only beach in The area with no waves. The right side in front of the lighthouse is the best for kids.

Concha Beach
Sep 2018 • Couples
Concha Beach lies behind a reef which protects it from the open ocean. It has thus peacefull waters, very suitable for swimming and sup. Small beach line, but well enough for kids to play, walk around, sunbathing, etc. Along the shore there are aprox 10 bars/restaurants, with local food, fish food and the brazilian drinks. All have their covered spaces, music and water front seats; all seem to close end afternoon; after sunset Concha Beach is calm. The area is anyway a calm area. Not to stay a week, but a couple of days helps for a welcome relax. Very friendly people, nice sunset, seems safe.

Calm beach with less waves
Jul 2018 • Family
The water is somewhat calmer here than in most of the other beaches nearby, and the innermost part of the beach (near the lighthouse/farol) has shallow water, which makes it an excellent playground for stand-up surf (talk to Pablo next to Cabana da Ximbica) and swimming.

Good options with regards to beach restaurants. And don’t worry about the ice cream salesperson going anywhere, like they do on most beaches. This guy just found his sweet spot and decided to hang there (surfing on his smartphone), letting customers come to him rather than having to walk around :-P

Easy access (5-10 minute walk) from the Pituba street / city centre.

Exceptional beach where you can swim close to the town centre
Jan 2018 • Couples
Itacaré has many beautiful beaches. The most beautiful are only accessible via long trails through the Atlantic rainforest. Four beaches are accessible by road. Three of this four beaches are surf beaches and not suited to swim. Reachable by road –and only 10 minus walk from the town centre - is Concha Beach. The beach is half inside the Rio Conta and half in the ocean. Therefore there are no surf waves and is it the only beach suitable to swim and kids can play in the water. Concha Beach is popular with families. The water is not as crystal clear as the full ocean beaches and the water quality changes depending on the tide and rainfall the days before, as after heavy rain the river brings lots of floating plants from the jungle. Still one can see your feet when up to you neck in the water. Along the beach are restaurants and several activities are offered, such as boat tours and stand up paddling.

Nice with good structure
Jan 2018 • Couples
This beach is the closest to the city and has the best structure for the tourist. It has several bars where you can by food and beverages. The water is very calm, looking like a giant swimming pool. You can do standup paddle if you like (you can rent it there).

Unique calm water without waves from river and ocean
Jan 2018 • Friends
Ideal for the practice of stand up and kayak due to calm water without waves, which resulted from the meeting of the sea with the Rio de Contas (that's why it is not that clear), it is unique and offer a nice view of Pontal and Ocean. You can also find many shells (conchas) as the name of the beach. Many shallow water natural pools with fish. Really nice spot.
