Pituba Beach, Salvador

2.3
#16 of 24 in Beaches in Salvador
Perfect for long walks along its firm stretch of sand, you will usually find Pituba Beach deserted, save for the occasional vender selling refreshing coconut water. This is not surprising as the water is unsuitable for swimming; a combination of strong currents, rocks, and pollution, which is typical of most of Salvador’s urban beaches, unfortunately. However, after a peaceful stroll, you can explore the regenerated waterside boardwalk, which is always bustling, and has sports courts, a cycle path, gardens, market stalls, and a variety of excellent restaurants.

  • The beach is quite nice and close to others. The location is very nice and has good infrastructure.

  • The beach is unfit for bathing, but the infrastructure it offers makes it worth knowing. There are restaurants, bars, an outdoor gym, a bike lane, a skate park and a Valentine's village.

  • A beach with an old infrastructure with great movement of vehicles and people, is distant and did not please me, dirty sea and with many stones.
