The most fantastic beach in Salvador. It is crammed with people. Vendors sell you anything from a cold drink, to clothes to oysters. A must is the roasted cheese with oregano though. This is not a beach to take a book to, there is just too much going on that you have to sit back and watch the world go by and wonder at it all!
Much more real and fun than the Pelourinho.
Barra, a coastal suburb of Salvador
A small eco village north of Salvador. Local bus, about an hour, up the road from Praia de Forte (Tamar turtle project) with a river running alongside the beach, which has a few barracas for cheap food and drinks. A wonderful place.
Morro de Sao Paolo is good too! Stayed in a great place on second beach. Fourth beach is the best, it's got a great Tahitian-style cafe there.
