Quite far from the city center, but the beach is nice with crystal clear water. Good offer of restaurants there with typical local food.

Flamengo beach in Salvador is a city beach easily accessible. It s relatively clean and you can swim in it. There are nicer beaches further away from the city, but Flamengo is a convenient option.

The crowd is Salvador are much less sophisticated than rio. We were welcomed I the beach to play football along with the locals. It was awesome. Made some buddies too. The beach is very clean and the small shacks temporarily set up sell beers. But they are costly, maybe due to World Cup season. At end of beach is a... More

Flamengo Beach has become one of the most dangerous places in Salvador; actually in Brazil! I know it better than good; lived nearby. I can just warn you to go there. In Stella Maris; part of the beach; they kill people every day. Young students, priests, tourists; whatever. Flamengo has become one of the worst parts of Salvador. Although whole... More

A very nice place for enjoying one of the cleanest parts of Salvador shore. Nice places for surfing and eating. Some few parts present natural swimming pools, which can receive children safely.

nice sand here, probably the cleanest of the Salvador beaches but still not that brilliant, the best I found was Barra because of the location and waves.

Fantastic local snack food and fantastic caparinjas....Pity that there was a little down pour which meant we could not go down to the beach, but it looked like a great swimming beach. Staff at Pipa were great.

We went to Flamengo Beach during the World Cup. The Beach is really nice and has a good restaurant near by. You can go swimming and enjoy the sun. After lunch we went for a walk along the beach to the south. It was the same time as the Brasilian Match, and nobody was left on the beach. Suddenlly a... More
