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.

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.

A lovely place to end the day, watching the sun sink into the sea while sipping a cold beer. Teenagers strum their guitars while pregnant ladies come for photo-shoots of their bellies. A relaxed place to be among relaxed locals.
