Bossa, charm, idyllic beaches and lots of personality are the hallmarks of Bahia. And it was thinking exactly about a place with this vibe that I chose Itacaré, in Bahia, and more precisely Barracuda Beach Hotel & Villas to write this article that marks my five years of collaboration with the best #TravelTips for our dear Camila Coelho.

So come travel with me. Imagine an extremely elegant hotel, sophisticated and at the same time focused on sustainability, connected with the essence of Bahian culture. This is Itacaré’s new favorite. 

Surrounded by privacy, the Barracuda Beach was built in early 2020 on a rocky coast, five minutes from the lively center of Itacaré and the urban beaches. It is already one of the most coveted hotels in Bahia. The hotel has only 17 minimalist suites, spacious, well-lit, with decor in soft tones, spectacular balconies that open onto the forest with the immensity of the sea on the horizon. 

The highlight is the infinity pool with sun loungers, comfy cushions, and delicious drinks. A place you don’t want to leave! Around the pool is the restaurant, which is wonderful and uses very fresh local ingredients from breakfast to dinner.

To discover the best hideouts in Itacaré, Barracuda Beach offers an incredible service with an “experience designer”. You can make all your requests and they will be fulfilled, from visiting the most pristine beaches, hiking to the many waterfalls in the region, surfing lessons, meditation, rafting, stand up paddle in the rivers, mangroves and the sea, visiting a cocoa plantation and whatever else you want.

Itacaré is an incredible destination in southern Bahia and Barracuda Beach came to bring even more shine to this region, which was discovered in the 70s by surfers. Write this tip down because it is powerful.
