Why did we choose Itacaré to be our home?
Itacaré is a small village on the coast of Bahia, with approximately 29 thousand inhabitants, located south of Salvador, on the Costa do Cacau (Cocoa Coast).
It has a giant area preserved by APA – Serra Grande Environmental Protection Area – Itacaré, covered by Atlantic Forest vegetation preserved with exuberant natural beauty and bathed by the Atlantic Ocean! It is a true paradise by the sea!
There are countless attractions to connect you with nature, and the most important attraction, for sure, is Surf.
Itacaré has been frequented by surfers since the early 1980s for having an excellent frequency of good waves throughout the year, the city receives many athletes and professional surfing championships such as the qualifiers of the WSL- World Surfing Circuit.
With a strong tourist vocation, Itacaré has a good hotel structure, a wide variety of restaurants and cafeterias, tour agencies and shuttle services. It is the ideal place to come and enjoy the “summer all year round” and catch some waves!
Here, you have an incredible variety of landscapes with 15 beaches to explore, in addition to waterfalls, trails and the historic center.
Here you will find everything from urban beaches, with restaurant services to deserted beaches covered by the Atlantic Forest, accessed through trails in the middle of the Forest. Itacaré is really privileged with a charming coastline.
During the summer the size of the waves decreases, the sea gains a turquoise color and is especially ideal for learning to surf. This is the whole summer here. Not to mention that the sea waters in this paradise are warmer, so there’s no excuse for not falling into the water!
At our school, you will find all the necessary guidelines, surfboards, the right equipment and an experienced team that will teach you the first steps in this sport and soon you will be gliding on the waves with safety and a lot of adrenaline!
And if you already know how to surf and want to improve your maneuvers, our school has a great team! Professor Zuqueto, responsible for the advanced course, is qualified by CREF (Regional Council of Physical Education), as well as a former professional competitor.
He manages to diagnose the student in the first class and develops several techniques so that your surfing level changes quickly.
Meninas do Mar School was founded in 2012 and since then we have provided this wonderful surfing experience for hundreds of students of all ages and different nationalities. Some of these students have become great friends and continue to visit us every year.
