Review from Joe

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Really comfortable and relaxed pousada where you get a great welcome from Jessica and Esdras who make you feel at home. You will not find a better breakfast in the rest of the continent than the one made by Jessica each morning - absolutely delicious!

Really close to one of Itacares main beaches and a short stroll into the main street of the town for restaurants and bars, though you have access to a small kitchen at the pousada if you wanted to cook for yourself.


How were the surf lessons?

     

Esdres is a great coach, and even managed to work around my lack of Portuguese by using actions and signals to get his advice across. He's really passionate about surfing and will eagerly show off the board that he has made which is very cool! He is also passionate and knowledgeable about the nature of Itacare and pointed out lots of interesting things on the walk through the jungle to the beach as well as in the garden of the pousada which added to the surfing for me.

As a beginner I was taken to Engenhoca beach where there was an easier channel to swim through to get beyond the break but where you got good waves consistently, but there are plenty of other beaches you could choose to go to in order to find the right waves for you. Whichever beach you go to, it is guaranteed to be paradise.
