Look forward to...

Having a custom-made surf board produced by one of the world's best shapers.

Swapping surf tips in the chilled shack-style bars along Piracanga beach, and ending the evening dancing Forró (the local dance) to reggae beats in one of the many bustling beach-side clubs.

Hiring kayaks and heading across the crystal clear waters to explore the pristine mangrove swamps.

Do you spend your working hours dreaming of surfing tropical shores instead of surfing the internet? How about sipping fruit cocktails on a warm Brazilian beach after an invigorating day riding the South Atlantic swell? If this sounds like you, head to Itacaré, the surf capital of Brazil.

Surfing in Bahia

And then of course there's the year-round warm climate - another plus. Not to mention the festive Latin spirit that infuses the region with a contagious vibrancy. Yeah, we'd say this place is pretty close to perfect.

surfer’s haven

Surfing in Bahia is a truly exhilarating experience for novices and experts alike. Daily lessons from our specialist guides will have first-timers confidently catching breaks in just a week. If you're an experienced surfer, grab this chance to revel in legendary waves such as the 1.5km long Boca de Barra break that peels down the coast - something to really shout about back in the office.

To complete the experience we can arrange for your own tailor-made surf board to be designed, shaped and waiting for you on arrival. This premium board, adapted to your measurements and expertise by a world famous Quicksilver shaper, will ensure that you get the most out of the surf.

A board with shaping, lamination, fins and design starts from £180 - the ultimate bespoke souvenir, and one we can guarantee no-one else will have. Take Havaiana flip flops. Yes, we like them as well, but they're not as unique as they once were. And then there are the beaches themselves: untouched gems lying in wait just north of the mouth of the Rio de Contas. Here you'll find empty stretches of yellow sand scattered with coconut palms, and rare wildlife such as tamarin monkeys and the three-banded armadillo.

your brazilian abode

Stay just outside the buzzing town of Itacaré at the stunning Txai hotel, widely regarded as being one of the best in Brazil.

Set in a 100-hectare coconut plantation and Atlantic Rain Forest, the hotel overlooks a paradise beach. It's surrounded by mangrove swamps, crystal clear waterfalls and the stunning flora and fauna that thrive in this, one of the most diverse biospheres on the planet.

So whether you spend your days surfing, horse trekking through the jungle or swinging in your hammock and your nights soaking up the legendary Brazilian party scene, this trip to the world's sexiest country ticks all the boxes.
