All places has its beauty in a way, so they can't be really compared. But I'm biased to say that found it to be the best beach among the others we've been (Itacarezinho, Tiririca, Rezende, and even Jeribucaçu). We went there in a day of pouring rain, so it might get full but we didn't really get a crowded beach.

This secluded beach is surround by beautiful jungles and a stream that runs into it. You can only get to the beach by walking about 15 mins down a trail that follows along a nice stream. It's a "beginner" surfers beach but the waves were a little rough when I went. There are nice palm trees to throw up a... More

Bit of a hike to get there but once there you are in paradise. Beach surrounded by tropical forest. Hardly anybody there. A few surfers and us. There is a small bar for drinks and some snacks.

We've been there a lot for surfing! beautiful short walk of 15 minutes through the jungle, the beach is lovely, nobody is bothering you with selling something! 👍🏼 There is a small tent (family business) where you can eat good tapioca, order coconuts and drinks, but that's all, beside that, pure nature, definitely our favourite beach in Itacaré! You can... More

We went with our two little girls. The trail was fine for them. The beach is beautiful, but take your food. There is one place that sells some food, but it doesn't seem to be good. It is a good place for surfing, but the place is very inviting for kids as well!

My surf school spent most of our surf sessions here when conditions permitted. A long, scenic walk through rainforest. Its a great place to learn surfing and there is a small food stand that sells tapioca and coconut drinks, which is a must in this tropical weather.

A short bus ride from Itacare takes you to the point where you can walk to Engenhoca beach. Give it about 30 mins to descend down the path through the trees which run parallel with a small river. Once you arrive there is a shack selling tapioca. Refuel here, the tapioca with coconut and banana is not to be missed... More
