For most international tourists the entry to Brazil will be through São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro or Salvador international airports. There are daily flights operated from domestic airlines LATAM and BRA to Ilhéus which is the closest airport to Itacaré.
From Ilheus (which has an airport) take a bus north – the ride takes less than two hours. From Salvador, you can take a ferry to Bom Despacho (50 min, 4 Reais) and then a bus to Itacaré (5 hours, R$30, bus company “Cidade do sol”, their terminal is directly behind the ferry port in Bom Despacho). There is also a bus that goes directly from Salvador to Itacaré, but it takes a lot longer than the ferry-bus combination (as it goes all around the bay of Salvador), is more expensive and only goes once or twice a week.
- Luanda, Filhos de Zumbi and Tribo do Porto are three capoeira groups in Itacaré. You don’t want to miss their shows. Their training sessions are open to visitors.
- EasyDrop. Professional surf school with intensive video review of your daytime sessions in the evenings.
- SOS Itacare movement. An effort to protect local beach access for the public.
