Located in the Lower City of Salvador on the Peninsula. Visit the fort and surround areas of Boa Viagem, Bonfim, and Ribeira in a half or full day visit to the lower city.

Nice building but just the landmark where the beach area begins. Small beach anyways but with less waves and closer restorants than the nearby Praia da Barra. Finally is up to you where to stay.

See one of the best sunsets at Salvador, near the sea and take lots of good pictures. You should also go to Ribeira after visiting Ponta de Humaita, it is near and amazing. Take care of yout belongings to not be stolen.
