At Txai Itacare discover a place where the jungle meets the ocean
While enjoying your vacation at the Txai resort you will have a golden opportunity to explore an area of exceptional biodiversity and geology.
The coastline’s fertile soil allows the “Mata Atlantica” – one of the last vestiges of this « primitive Atlantic forest” – to spread down to the sea.
Taking the form of sheep-like clusters on the beach or completely covering the cliffs, this exuberant jungle seems to want to throw itself into the azure waves of the ocean. It delicately carves the coastline into wild coves with bright white sandy beaches which are a beautiful contrast to the lush vegetation and provide an ideal setting for long hours of sunbathing.
The isolated Txai Resort beach is several kms long and in the middle of nowhere. It therefore offers long relaxing walks, pleasantly accompanied by the trade winds. Just a few minutes walk away from the hotel complex you will also find a paradise like scenery hidden among coconut and palm trees.
For surfing enthusiasts, it is possible to have lessons at the Txai Resort and enjoy the scenery in trying out this sport, with spots offering perfect surfing conditions.
The Txai Itacare, is an ideal destination for a “green” vacation
In such an environment, a few walks in the forest become a real enchantment accessible to all.
Each instant will reveal the wonders of this tropical nature that reigns over this region.
There are two advantages in hiring a local guide, either from the hotel or from one of the travel agents in Itacare : You won’t have to worry about keeping to the right tracks and not getting lost, and the guide will show you a many interesting things whether it be animals, plants or other so that you get the most out of your walks.
For those really looking for “green tourism” and wanting more active excursions, the APA ecological reserve of Serra Grande and the Regional Park of the Serra do Conduru are obvious destinations. Going to visit these local biodiversity sanctuaries will be an opportunity to take hiking trails into the heart of the jungle and to discover an ecosystem over 60 million years old!
Discover the charming village of Itacare
It is possible to visit the village of Itacare 17kms away by ordering a taxi at the hotel reception or by joining one of the hotel tours to the village (optional).
Founded in 1532, at the start of the Portuguese colonization, this little village has a long history. Originally, the mouth of the River das Contas (river of pearls) formed a perfect bay for Portuguese and Dutch pirate ships raiding the region, laying anchor here very often. Later on the village harbor existed thanks to whaling.
But it was at the start of the XXth century that Itacare grew a little more with the cultivation of cocoa. Today, it is a modest fishing and farming village very typical in this area with coloured houses and cobbled streets. The authenticity is worth a visit to discover the daily life locked in the traditions of the inhabitants of this Bahian coastline.
If you are looking for entertainment in the evening, relax « Bahian style » in the village bars and restaurants. You can dance to the frenzied rhythms of the regional music such as the Axé or the samba and the samba-reggae, a local specialty. Without forgetting to taste – with moderation – a capeta, an invigorating local cocktail with Guarana an ideal way to enjoy your evening after a long day of sunny beaches and forest walks.
