Alison's pousada review
Itacare is situated on the Cocoa Coast of Bahia, the stretch which runs between Ilheus, 65km to the south and Salvador 230kms to the north, just where the Rio das Contas river meets the ocean. The town itself has indigenous origins but became known as Itacare as early as 1732 and countless grandiose mansions atest to the wealth of the town and region during the cocoa boom of the early 20th century.
Rediscovered some 40 years ago by surfers, the town has grown rapidly and there are now countless pousadas, bars, restaurants and nightlife. But for those who prefer more peace or who prefer more ecological tourism there are some wonderful trails and palm tree fringed deserted beaches nearby, many set in spectacular scenery, with mountains and atlantic forest as a backdrop.
- surfing on Tiririca, Engenhoca, Jeribucacu and Prainha beaches
- capoeira, shopping and nightlife in Itacare
- eco adventures: rafting, tiroleza, whalewatching (July- November)
- side trips to Taipus de Fora and Peninsula de Marau
- good value, great food at Maluca Beleza restaurant
- Best surfpeaks of northeastern Brazil on your doorstep
- Wonderful breakfasts with home made delicacies
- Views over Tiririca beach from lounging deck
