  • The praia da Ribeira is right in front of the ice cream shop da Ribeira. An ice cream at one of the banks that are in front of the beach is great for relaxing. Transmits a lot of calmness. The beach is not suitable for bathing.

  • The ribeira is a wonderful place to meet, especially in the late afternoon to catch the sunset and raze in clicks. At the same time it's all beautiful, one should pay attention because it appears to be a little dangerous, for example, I and my friends were followed and we had to go into a bar to ask Uber and go, with our walk.

  • Quiet place to take a walk, contemplate the sea and go eat in several gastronomic points that lies there. Has no beach to swim.

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.
