Porto da Barra beach is one of Salvado's main natural deligths. Cool water and no waves, just in front of the beautiful Itaparica Island and sided by two of our ancient fortresses, it's a impossible to miss, spot.

Beautiful water and beautiful people just wanting to relax and stay cool. It's also the perfect place to enjoy the Bahian sunset along the water.

The beach has a beautiful sunset but it was way too crowded to sit down and the entire place reeked of urine and marijuana. Definitely not a place for relaxation or children. Skip!

Probably this one of the best beaches close to Salvador. The ocean is quite calm and warm enough to swim.
