During summer (from December to March), the water is always warm and wave sizes range from 1 to 6 feet. However, we still have waves for all levels and skills.

From April through May, the waves are stronger and range from 3 to 9 feet. In winter (from July to September), there are more rainy days with waves up to 10 feet. From June to September, the weather is rainier and the water is cloudier.

You will find the most famous beaches between Serra Grande and Itacaré, such as Engenhoca, Itacarezinho, Jeribucaçu, Prainha and Praia do Pompilio.

The Pousada Bahia das Jangadas is located in the heart of the Atlantic Forest of southern Bahia, it takes its name in honor of the "jangadeiros", who are artisanal fishermen from the region who go out to sea in search of mainly Mahi Mahi and Bass.

They are specialists in fishing for these fish and have their traditional knowledge passed on from generation to generation.

Its Jangadas are produced with specific trees, known as Paus de Jangada, which are endemic to the region. Here at the inn, we value the culture and the local community and we are always integrated, participating, and encouraging the insertion of the community in the economy generated by tourism.
