My favourite beach in Brazil. A great hike through the region's forest, than through a coconut plantation before arriving at paradise.

Wonderful beach, bit of a mission on the bus to get there but definitely worth it! Buses go once every hour from Itacare or of course you can take your own vehicle. You can hike to other beaches from here and there's small private buses...More

This is a beautiful beach, not a lot of people. The walk there is also very nice. I would recommend to go back before the night... Wasn't so good doing it in the dark.

Hard to find your way to the beach through the wild forest (dont forget mosquito lotion) but worth the effort . no one there early in the morning and the Sandy beach is like paradise!

É linda, mas não é exatamente a melhor praia pra banhistas. Na real, é pra surfistas e fotógrafos mesmo. Gorgeous, but not the safest water for a swim. It's actually for surfers and photographers

You can reach it thru a 40 min walk. It is not mandatory, but there are local guides to hire at Ribeira beach. Take water and some food, because you can stay for a while on the wonderful almost desert beach.

Best beach on Itacaré, good for those who love hikes and adventures! The hike is 1.6 miles lengh, and a guide is only necessary if you are not used to hike.
