EasyDrop Surf Camp Itacare
Brazil: South Bahia
Beautiful surf house just steps away from the beach. Communal areas, delicious local breakfasts and an abundance of breaks in the region.
To make your stay in Itacaré as comfortable as possible, we chose Pousada Girassol as our standard EasyDrop lodging option to accompany all of our surf packages.
Pousada Girassol is located on Praia da Concha, one of the most posh neighborhoods in Itacaré and an excellent place for relaxing and swimming. You'll find numerous beach huts here selling cold beer and fresh seafood. The pousasda is beautifully located just steps from the beach with views of Boca da Barra swells. In addition, a short 5-minute walk will bring you to the heart of town and the EasyDrop headquarters where we depart daily to our surf destination.
Pousada Girassol is a friendly, family-run business and EasyDrop has been partnering with them to house our students for the last several years. The proprietors, friendly folks from the central Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, are flower enthusiasts and you’ll often find rare species scattered around the walled garden.
All 12 rooms in Pousada Girassol are spacious, extremely clean and individually decorated and include a private bathroom. For your convenience, each room comes with air conditioning, small refrigerator, TV, and a veranda with hammock.
Each day they serve up a rich, tropical breakfast in an airy outdoor patio and include homemade specialties from Minas Gerais. Since Pousada Girassol is tightly integrated into the EasyDrop concept, breakfast will even be made available on days with early surf sessions.
Single and double room lodging is available in our lovely beachfront lodge.

Praia da Concha
Praia da Concha doesn't offer any surfable waves because the beach is protected by Itacaré's lighthouse and jetty. However, when the south swells start pumping in the winter months (May to September), Praia da Concha becomes the departure point for stunning surfing sessions at Boca da Barra and Praia do Pontal, which are two of the most legendary peaks in the region. A 15-minute paddle will be worth your while, because the waves are among the finest in northeastern Brazil! Both spots can be seen easily from the balconies of Pousada Girassol.
To save your budget for the big adventure we recommend staying at Casarão Verde. A beautiful hostel located right in front of the buzzling sea front promenade. You can enjoy your breakfast while watching the palm trees moving in the wind and the fisher boats returning from the night catch. The city center and the EasyDrop headquarter are just a few meters away and some of the world's most beautiful beaches are in walking distance.
The "big green house" is more than just an ordinary hostel. The house is an old heritage building representing the architecture and style back from the cocoa and colonial time early in the twentieth century. Still owned by the fourth generation of the same family it creates a friendly and relaxed atmosphere where people from all over the world meet and share experiences.
The building accommodates dorm as well as private rooms, which are all lovely decorated in a relaxed and clean environment. Every morning a beautiful breakfast is served while you can enjoy the view over the Sea. The friendly staff is always around and can help you to organize your day activities. During the night you can meet fellow travelers at the Hostel bar and play games while you are listing to great music.
Large windows, fans, spacious room, individual lockers, sheets included, daily house keeping.
