  • Best beach in salvador. The only thing not so good is q she gets crowded in high season. But it's just come in early. Wonderful sunset! The water is so clean q beyond your feet you can see fish tb!

  • Praia do farol da Barra is not one of the most beautiful of Salvador. Like all urban beach, leaves something to be desired. But it has an amazing sunset. The Boardwalk has been revitalized. Worth much the ride on the edge.

  • The Barra's Lighthouse is a postcard of Salvador City, at beach with the same name , is the oldest in Brazil but is in a great conservation status. The visit worth cause the historical value, the beautiful neighborhood and the stunning views when you climb until the top! At the building of the old fort, we visited the museum that explain the History of the Lighthouse since the 16th Century and an interesting pictures exposition.

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.
