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.

Located in an opposite direction from Farol da Barra, it is less touristic but still a great place to visit. A 10 minute walk from Bonfim church takes you to this place where you can enjoy great views of Salvador from distance. I really enjoyed it !!!

It's a really nice place to see the sunset but It's hard to get there because the bus stop is a bit far, however if you're good walking you might try the route I did: Ribeira (Nice Ice Creams), Igreja do senhor do Bomfim and the Humaita...

Salvador is a lovely city - full of charming sites to be discovered around every corner. Ponta de Humaita gives a beautiful seaside vista of the city. Well worth a visit.

This is a great place to view Salvador's city skyline, the bay and there is also an area to swim. It's perfect for sunset and to have a cool drink and mix with the soteropolitanos

You get to see a different view of Salvador. Nice breeze and a visit to Mont Serrat Little Church from the 17 century. One of the most important in Brazil
