Porto da Barra Beach is located between the Fortes of São Diogo and Santa Maria, and is located in the urban part of Salvador. With calm and warm waters, this is one of the beaches that cannot be left out of your itinerary.
In Rio Vermelho - a bohemian neighborhood - is Praia do Buracão which, although less sought after, is also the perfect place to enjoy some tranquility. In turn, Praia Amaralina has strong waves and is, therefore, very frequented by surfers.
On its left side, however, the waters are much calmer. Here, you can take the opportunity to cool off with the famous coconut waters, and venture out with acarajés and other typical dishes from Bahia.
In Itapuã, marvel at the rock formations that originate the natural pools and the rest of the scenery, essentially characterized by clear waters, tall coconut trees and a very charming lighthouse.
Flavors that make us smile
Here are the flavors you can't miss:
Moqueca baiana - a kind of fish and seafood stew. In addition to the basic ingredients mentioned above, it also contains coconut milk and is traditionally cooked and served in a clay pot;
Shrimp Bobó - very similar to moqueca, this dish, in addition to being more dense, also includes manioc;
Acarajé e Abará - bean cake, fried in palm oil and stuffed with shrimp and some other ingredients. The main difference between acarajé and abará is in the cooking mode, with one being fried (acarajé) and the other steamed (abará);
Tapioca / Beijú - breakfast, lunch, dinner or at any other time of the day. The sky is the limit for its filling, and can vary between sweet and salty.
And to sweeten the palate, we highlight the cocada, the rice pudding, the canjica, the baba de moça, the student cake and the mungunzá.
