Brazil’s third-largest city, Salvador da Bahia, is perfectly situated for taking advantage of some of the country’s most spectacular scenery, from idyllic beach fronts to historic villages.
A scenic drive from Salvador takes you to the beautiful Atlantic coast of Praia do Forte, an ideal destination boasting stunning beaches fringed with swaying palms.
Travel even further north and you come to the delightful fishing village of Mangue Seco.
Up and down the Atlantic coast you can explore bays, inlets and islands. The sheltered Bay of Camamu, south of Salvador, boasts the gorgeous tropical island of Tinharé.
More history awaits in the beautifully preserved village of Cachoeira, within easy reach of Salvador. The churches and houses here represent some of the best colonial architecture you’ll see in Brazil, including outstanding examples of richly decorative Baroque.
If Rio de Janeiro is Brazil’s golden, glamorous face, and the Amazon its exotic, mysterious heart, then Salvador da Bahia is its irrepressibly joyful soul. Famous for its wild festivals (Salvador’s Carnaval gives Rio’s a run for its money) and friendly, fun-loving people, this colorful colonial city is alive with music and history. Ready for some sizzling beats in the tropical heat? From impromptu street parties to folkloric festivals, music pervades Salvador, while its sun-drenched beaches are legendary. Add beautiful buildings and a fascinating Afro-Brazilian culture, and you’ll be hooked.
