:: SUMMER (December to March) ::

Smaller waves and some swells that can take characteristics of winter surf. Very hot climate with off shore's in the morning and shore winds in the afternoon. The city is full of tourists from all over Brazil and other countries and nightlife is very lively. There is usually a big swell in March that marks the start of the annual surf season.

:: WINTER (June to September) ::

Medium to big waves between 1 and 3 meters. Successive cold fronts and lots of waves everyday. More possibility of rain and the average temperature is between 19 and 24 degrees Celsius. In July the city turns itself into an authentic surf city when surfers from all over Brazil rush in for the winter.

It's holiday time in southeast and southern Brazil and that brings a cool group of people to Itacaré. Lively nightlife and powerful waves with less crowds in the morning or when it gets big.

:: SPRING (September to December) and AUTUMN (March to June) ::

Spring and Autumn have similar characteristics. Medium size waves with lots of perfection. The city only has crowds during the weekends. Lots of offshore winds during the morning and barreling waves too.
