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.
