Salvador and the Bahia Coast Sights

Praia Itapuã

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 06/24/2013

Fodor's Review

Frequented by the artists who live in the neighborhood, the Itapuã beach offers has an eclectic atmosphere. There are food kiosks—including Acarajé da Cira, one of the best places to get acarajé (a spicy fried-bean snack). Although the coconut palms and white sands remain idyllic, it is advisable to be watchful of your belongings. Inland from Itapuã, a mystical freshwater lagoon, the Lagoa de Abaeté, and surrounding sand dunes are now a municipal park.

Itapuã's dark waters are a startling contrast to the fine white sand of its shores, but it's not suitable for swimming. Amenities: food and drink, toilets, parking. Best for: walking.
