  • Small beach, with a lot of people. Place very popular with many students. Sea water hits hard what is difficult to swim. Little sand which causes people to stay close. Rent a beach umbrella with two beach chairs is at 25.00, but negotiate is by 53 ha.and 25 ha beside

  • Beautiful beach with coral reefs that make up great puddles to be "quarando" in the Sun. ... Jigsaw has tents with a good infrastructure, good bar service and restaurant and a Boardwalk to exercise at the beginning or end of the day.

  • By hiding behind houses, buildings and hotels, the beach is more reserved. Great for those who want an area without a lot of people, but of tradition in the city. Is a beach frequented by locals. A good place to take small children to bathe because the beach has several natural pools because of the rocks. But there are also stones areas at both ends of the beach. For the pools, always check if the tide is low. Otherwise, it is not a good choice for children and for those who don't like a sea with waves sometimes strong. There are sellers of Bahia, acarajé and drinks, at one end, there's an excellent restaurant that has an access to the beach, Blue Beach Bar. Is a beach restaurant, but with a more refined service and high prices.

Where to stay in Salvador

The majority of accommodations in Salvador fall into three distinct groupings. If you want to be close to the best historical attractions, stay in or near the old town of Pelourinho, a few minutes from the city's west-facing coastline. This also puts you in the heart of Salvador's tourist-driven nightlife. Your second option is to stay at the southwestern tip of the city, in the neighborhood of Barram, where you'll have instant access to one of Salvador's favorite beaches. Finally, look a bit farther afield to Rio Vermelho, a quieter beachside neighborhood facing south.
