  • 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.
  • Linda
  • Excellent beach! The big problem in the region is very difficult to find parking, you're going to have some difficulty if you go by car. The beach is good, even though a limited space of sand, which is thoroughly clean. Here you will have the option to go to the Museum of Farol da Barra, has beautiful replicas of boats, diving suit super relic. Is a good option for you to walk the whole family. The prices are reasonable for all that is offered. Recommend!
