The closest surf beach to town, with very little infrastructure, it is located in a protected area.
Resende is a gorgeous little beach with fine white sand, tons of coconut trees and sometimes very good waves for surfing.
Access to the beach is by foot via a small track leading from Itacaré´s main road (Caminho das Praias)
Small huts along the beach sell drinks and fruits.
Accommodations can be found at the nearby beach, Tiririca, and in the neighborhood of Pituba.
Building a Carbon Free Destination
In Itacaré and Serra Grande, look for the «Carbon Free Tourism Certification Program» seal exposed in hotels, restaurants and other services.
The funds gathered through the program are redirected to traditional small-scale farmers to plant trees which will neutralize CO² emissions of the program contributors.
