Whether you like this beach or not depends on what you are looking for. If you like crowded, noisy beaches encroached upon every step of the way by tourists, restaurants, bars and shops, you will love "Beach 2". If not, go to any other beach on the island.

If you're visiting Salvador, it's totally worth the effort to take all the buses and boats to get out to Morro de San Paulo, even just for the day. It's very busy, it's no secluded island, but is very beautiful and there's lots to see and do! This beach is very busy with lots of shops and dining etc. right... More

It's a nice place you wanna sit and drink and eat. The beach is ok and because of the hotels it's crowded. There are many restaurants and shops.

Very relaxing. You can rent the chairs for the day and the view is amazing. They walk by all day offering food and drink. You never have to leave. Great service and friendly conversation .water is nice to swim in. Great for children.

The Segunda Praia is the main beach in the village, the most organised, the most popular and the one wher most of the restaurants, bars and clubs are located. Great for people watching & meeting, great for a beach side drink (or two), great for partying and great for all beach sports. If you are looking for peaceful tropical beaches... More

This is where is all happens, the restaurants and the night life. It can be noisy so don´t stay here if you are looking for a quiet stay.

Too busy but great place to spend time. Not clean enough or big enough beach for my liking. But a lot of activity on the beach, so keep the excitement level up.

If you are the sort of person who enjoys a nice view of the nature and some beautiful sights, but thinks people spoil it. you will feel the same way I did. The second beach of Morro de São Paulo is really beautiful, but it was so busy, packed and crowded that we couldn't even see the nature or even... More
