Fernandosouzafilho, The Stella Maris Square is one of the most beautiful in Salvador, as you mentioned at low tide, there are natural swimming pools, excellent to take the children, but the high tide is an excellent request for surfers. One thing is for sure, the...More

One of the best beach in Salvador. Far from the centre, with few people. The are natural pools between the rocks but also places to surf. There are places to seat, drink and eat regional staffs like coconut, caipirinha, acarajé and seafood.

We had been at the hotel for our first anniversary, it was good stay, it is a nice beach and well set building but needs a renovation, it seems abandoned !

The beach has strong current and ruffle waves. There is a dangerous part with weird people. Be careful.

A typical beach of the city of Salvador, very dirty, smells bad, grease food and lots of people. I do not recommend.

Stella Maris beach is probably what you'd call blend and generic. There's nothing special about it - Sand is okay, the sea is okay, the public is okay, nothing stands out. However on the other hand, it does not suffer from the crowded environment, and...More
