Ribeira Beach

Ribeira Beach in Salvador

Considered one of the most charming beaches in Salvador, Praia da Ribeira has a very calm bay, where the water is nearly mirrored at times and is used for training and competitions for waters sports such as rowing, sailing and canoeing competitions where the calm water is a necessity for the competitions.  Previously the calm waters of the cove had been used for landing airplanes, and today the old station that received the planes has been turned into a seaside restaurant.  The entire area is bustling with night entertainment, bars, and restaurants serving local cuisine.


The area is also home to many fishing boats, and it's not uncommon to see hundreds of fishing boats in the harbour, as this was originally a fishing village and still has ties to the fishing industry.  The area finally became a summer recreational city in the early twentieth century.
