This is one of the most beautiful beach of Salvador, but very dirty and contaminated. What do they expect the local authorities to save what can be saved? A pity that ALL the town beach is contaminated.

In spite of being a bit far away from the city center, Praia do Flamengo is a really nice place to stay for a day/afternoon. The facilities in the 'Barraca do Pipa' are nice and the crew as well.

Not easy at all... going to the beach in Salvador! Flamengo and Stela Maris are the best options by far! All the other beaches are polluted, crowded, dirty and receive a stinky sewage water...Actually they were meant to be only rain water drains...but once the city sewage system is insufficient, the slums use them to release the rejects. Going north,... More

Really, the strip between stella maris, flamengo and maybe even ipitanga is nothing to call home about. Sea, water, attendees, food are all mediocre, and so is the price in the other hand. I gues its valid for one visit just to get to know.

A beautiful beach, near San Salvador de Bahía, but without contamination. A special place to rent an apartment, and from there, visit Bahía.

Possibly one of the most spectacular beaches in Salvador. Great family beach with light crowds on the weekends and the water is pristine.

If you like to go to a beach where you can get big waves, so this is the right beach to go. This beach is the favourite of surfing. Just be careful with your stuff. There is a lot of pick pockets around the area.
