Set on the Bahian coast, Itacare is a town with its very own distinctive character. Even the geography is unique with many small beach coves, rather than endless beaches found in other part of Bahia. This has the effect of making them more intimate and gives the feeling of being surrounded by nature. While this is one of the best (and most popular) places in Brazil for surfing, there is no shortage of other adventure sports, with white water rafting, trekking, mountain biking, rappel and paragliding all on offer.

The town itself is quite pleasant, with some beautiful colonial buildings, good restaurants and fun bars.
