    Good beach. The Lighthouse is one of the most important sights of Salvador. It's worth checking out the beautiful sunset showered the music.

    Beautiful, is on the edge, which is very nice for a walk. It's worth it! A region where there are many bars also-but not as good as in other parts of the city.

    Beautiful beach with environment familiar and less crowded which is on the side (Porto da Barra) there are many street vendors... We rent umbrella and two deck-chairs for 10 reais to a very kind person, that we responded very well, sold us beer, large Tin by 6 real and very good caipirinha 12 reais. The only negative of this beach is that it has lots of rocks.

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.
