We rent a boat among a group of friends and I fully recommend this trip for anyone. ~45 minutes far from Salvador in the quiet waters of the Baia de Todos os Santos. Water and sand are awesome with few people in the beaches. You need to go!

Our tour took us to a few beaches! It was incredible. Best beaches ever - the water was warm! I didn't want to leave! I love that everywhere we went we had live music.. just Bahianos sharing their culture and passion. It was an amazing experience. Highly recommend it.

We rent a boat and spent the whole day around the bay, visiting islands including Ilha dos Frades, where we had an amazing lunch. Get to couples and groups of friends.

This little island is really well kept. the waters are nice and clean and also the beach has all services. You have to pay a fee when you land. Best thing to do is to go to the imbarcadero and buy a gulf tour . when you see the weather is nice.

This place was as tranquil as can be. Not to many people, access to umbrella and a table, drinks, food, but the beautiful beach, just lovely.
