Salvador and the Bahia Coast Sights

Papa Gente

  • Body Of Water/Waterfall

Updated 06/24/2013

Fodor's Review

Swim or snorkel in the crystal clear (and safe) waters of the Papa Gente, a 3-meter- (10-foot-) deep natural pool formed by reefs at the ocean's edge. Located 1½ km (1 mile) from Projecto Tamar, walk north along the beach when the tide is low and look out for a coconut vendor, who sits in front of the path that leads to the pools and has masks and snorkels for rent. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude, swimming, snorkelling, walking.
