Outside the city, so you need a car/taxi/tourist bus to get there. There are two different paths. I choose the shorter, but the steeper one also. This beach depends on the sea tide. Nice to go at low tide, so you can walk around to see the natural pools with small fishes. When the tide rises, it takes over much... More

Jeribucacu is nice, but far from being among the top beaches I've been to. Lots of black sand that is very sticky. Sandbars and such made for some very strong currents and poor conditions for body surfing. The walk back up the hill when you're done gets you pretty sweaty, and it's basically just a road so not overly scenic.... More

Took a taxi here and hiked down to the beach. Took about30 minutes. Steep and slippery in some areas but we'll worth it. The beach is amazing with a few food and beer vendors. Cash only!

This beach is so different and special. Take a taxi to the end of the trail (team up with friends or likeminded travelers) and walk 30 mins to the beach. They have lovely fish meals and lots of beer. When the tide comes in and fills the river, it's magical!

Jeribucacu looks the same as lot of beaches, such as Resende, just much bigger. The waves across a lot of the Itacare beaches are somewhat rough, so get ready to jump waves and/or be knocked over. There are some areas of the beach that have very low waters to sit and chat in, which is quite nice. But be careful,... More

Wonderful place! We went with kids and even though the trail was difficult, they managed it! The beach is really beautiful and the people selling fish and coconut are very welcoming! If you go there remember to get some money with you to eat a fish called Vermelho acioba from a kiosk there. Ask for Luiz. He knows how to... More

It is a long walk down a steep hill, but trust me it's worth it. When there, have the fish and then head for the long walk home where your surf board feels even heavier!!!

Jeribucaçu is beautiful, the nicest beach in the surroundings of Itacaré. Walking there took only 20 minutes through a very beautiful track in the atlantic forest. A combination of some exercise, a nice shadowed area under the coconut trees, bathing in clean and warm sea and river waters and an excellent barbecued fish in the end of the afternoon. Perfect...

Jeribucaçu is the beach you want to visit if you want to escape from it all. To get there you need to go by car or taxi so its not a crowded place at all. Fun experiencing it during high tide when the river and ocean merge and you can float/swim up and down the river. Enjoy the fresh fish... More

It's tough to get to there! Average of 30 - 50 min walk but it definitely worth it! It's one of the most beatifull beaches in Brazil! In low season you could be alone! For those who like to surf, you'll find excellent waves if you get the right Swell!
