Barracuda Beach Hotel

Located in the heart of a unique town rich in history and culture, a combination of privacy and personal service, sets the tone for the hospitality that connects each Barracuda guest with the Bahian nature. With only 17 suites, Barracuda Beach Hotel is a haven in complete harmony with the untouched nature of Itacaré.
Just a few steps from the main street and next to one of the most beautiful beaches in the city.


The coastline of Itacaré is special because here you can find flat beaches that stretch out for miles, to very small beaches, that are kind of hidden surrounded by hills and the raining forest. Knowing this it is no surprise that this region offers a big variety of surf spots receiving different swell directions, with different bottom shapes. Many of these spots are empty due to their remote location and limited access.


Alchemy occurs when passion, regional ingredients and international culinary techniques blend together. Enjoy the finest cuisine in the whole area in one of the restaurants at the resort. The restaurants offer a light cuisine with local products served in carefully prepared dishes.
