A nice place to watch the sunset, but there is nothing else around to do and if is in a dodgy are. We left after sunset so it was dark, and taxis would not stop for us as they did not want to stop in that area.

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.
