    Delicious beach with warm waters, stretches quite safe and suitable for sea-bathing, "Plac Ford" to the lighthouse.

    Beach furthest from the center of the city, more comfortable to relax and take a Sun without much harassment of hawkers. For eating options in paria are lower, but off the track of movement of cars, there are many restaurants and hotels.

    The truth is that the beach leaves much to be desired, although there are stones and some snails and fish, the truth is that sand is piedroza, sea hit much in the rocks, the Lantern is not nothing incredible and area is not very good and infrequency of buses, the attention of the hostel where I was was not the best. I think flemengo is pretty close and wins by a landslide. The afternoon the area may become a bit unsafe

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.
