Pitinga Beach

Vacation Travel Guide
Pitinga Beach showing a beach, tropical scenes and general coastal views

Marvel at the colorful fish in the small pools that emerge at low tide at this beach with upscale tents and excellent food.

A colorful maze of clifftop vegetation encloses the golden sand and clear water of Pitinga Beach. It is famous for the charming huts and kiosks serving food and refreshments. Relish the tranquility of this secluded spot from the comfort of your deck chair and tent area.

Snap photos of the intense blue of the ocean, which is particularly calm here. Work on your tan on the stretch of sand and go for a dip in the ocean to cool down. A slight ocean breeze keeps sunbathers comfortable. Admire the views of the lush tropical forest that flourishes on the coastal cliffs that enclose the beach.

Relax in the shade of one of the upscale tents, which come with bathroom facilities and showers. The useful facilities and shallow water make for ideal conditions for families with children. Snooze on the comfortable cushions protecting the deck chairs and order acclaimed food to eat with friends and family in your tent.

Listen to live music from a performer beside the tents. Purchase handicrafts and coconut water from vendors patrolling the stretch of sand.

There is a fee to rent the tents for the day. Note that the ocean is calmer at low tide, when charming pools of water full of colorful fish emerge. Bring snorkeling gear for close-up glimpses of the aquatic life here. At low tide, you can walk quite a distance before the water reaches knee height. Discover the network of coral reef, around which many types of marine creatures thrive.

Pitinga Beach is in the Arraial d’Ajuda area in the northeastern part of Brazil. It is about 5 miles (8 kilometers) south along the coastline from Porto Seguro. Walk south for around 10 minutes from the large beach resort of Mucugé, which cars can also reach via a dirt road.

"Overall, it’s a great place in a great location. The rooms could do with a little update, especially the bathroom, as it lags of shelves, to put your toiletries on. And when you take a shower, you can smell the drains. Breakfast was very good, with loads of variety, even though, they only do veggie ..."
