  • Just arrived and applied sun tan lotion. Distracted by a man selling water and blinded by the sun. At that moment our rugsac was stolen by a young man. We ran after him and tried to get people to stop...  more »
  • The first day started at the place, since we was close, in midsummer and close to Carnival, but everything was very nice, the beach is quiet and has some "pools" for children, as well as the attention of workers sandpipers was excellent. It is also near the lighthouse, although we had to go the next day to enter.

  • 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.
