This great beach is located north of Salvador's city centre, close to Itapua. For sure it is far more better than the city centre beached; clean, spacious, nice people and good restaurants.

We rested, relaxed, swam, caught waves, and drank beers and Caipairinhas. There is a a cafe as well as the usual chair/umbrella vendors as well as 'walk by" service for food, snacks, etc. Water and sand were clean.

It is a good beach to relax and swim. Unfortunately there is a lack of good infrastructure in this place.

The beach has great infrastructure of bars and restaurants that serve you at the beach. You will see beautiful people there. It can get a bit too crowded during high season. It is a good place for flirting and having great fruit caipirinhas.

If you are looking for a good place to surf and to see beautiful people, go to praia do Flamengo. That's the place. The best point should be Barraca do Louro, DJ all day.

Great beach with lots of options of restaurants in the sand.( Known as "quiosques". Bathroom facilities nearby. Palm trees all along the beach.

This beach looks nice but be very careful before you go to water. There are some hidden sharp rocks and strong undertow. There is plenty of choice for good food in simple "barracas".

By bus, it's a 30 minute ride from Salvador and it's well worth it to get away from the crowded beaches of the inner city. Clean water, space for everyone and cool bars, food barracks and restaurants.

Beautiful waters with sand & rocky cliffs... many areas to eat and shop. There were loads of people walking, running, playing games and dancing along the shore line/side walk.

For me is the best beach for outsiders. Nice people, but get early on the morning or you wont find any spot...
