Porto da Barra Beach

Porto da Barra Beach in Salvador Bahia

The beach has simple tents, clean water and calm seas suitable for bathing, which makes it one of the most sought after beaches on the weekends. During the week it is far quieter. A nice attraction is the night lighting, which ensures an active area even after the sun goes down.  Porto da Barra is furthest point out into the ocean around Salvador, and it's also the place where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Baía de Todos os Santo.  The beach here is also very well suited for many water sports such as windsurfing.

 

It is in Porto da Barra that the Genovese navigator Americo Vespucci planted the flag of the Portuguese possession in Brazil in 1501. Years later, in 1549, it was time to disembark and Tomé de Souza founded the city of Salvador.   The historical importance of this beach is well known and there are many monuments such as the fortress of Santa Maria and San Diego, and the church of Our Lady of Grace and Our Lady of Victory.

 

On Fridays and Saturdays it is also worthy visiting the "Delícias do Porto da Barra" (Porto da Barra Delights) a most interesting crafts and food fair.
