  • Quiet beach at low tide with plenty of option of street walkers selling everything. Interesting to stay in the left corner near the hill and barravento restaurant, there the beach is quieter and with more sand, you will be able to rent tent and chairs for 20 reais the day.

  • 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.

  • From the 5 beaches we visited, this was our favorite. People of all kinds, neither too full nor empty. Sun Umbrella and chair paying only consummation. Excellent service. Delicious Acarajé and many good options of the walking fairers: Cheese, Popsicé, acarajé, shrimp, pies... Clean water and sand and quiet tide. The view from the lighthouse at sunset is mandatory, beautiful scenery.

  • Many sea stones and hedgehogs on the beach, the regulars must be as careful as possible. The view from the lighthouse and its history are very interesting.

  • This beach is wonderful. One of the beaches that ever loved. With low tide form natural pools, the problem is that it has strong waves. Have to be very careful with children and qd at high tide is not a good idea to bring children
