A place to chill out, they have drinks and food, there´s not too many people so it isn´t like the centre of the city. Beautiful view of Salvador-

While in Salvador, take a detour to Ponta de Humaita. It is a small corner in Salvador that faces the Bay with rustic but beautiful scenery !

It was a cloudy and raining day when we stopped here and ate our lunch. There was nothing open that we could get into, but it was interesting to see the old fort.

A lovely place to end the day, watching the sun sink into the sea while sipping a cold beer. Teenagers strum their guitars while pregnant ladies come for photo-shoots of their bellies. A relaxed place to be among relaxed locals.

The place is so beautiful, but unfortunately it seems that was left behind and no one cares about the maintenance. Also it is really hard to find parking spots. It is also very dirty.

The Ponta de Humaitá is one of the most beautiful places in all of Salvador. It is located in one of the projections on the peninsula. For this reason it has a lighthouse, signaling danger area for navigation and nautical orientation generally.
