Discover the shore and beaches of Salvador.


On this tour you will see Atlantic coast with the most popular and beautiful beaches of the city on a sight seeing tour that takes you also to several famous neighbourhoods, like Rio Vermelho where the famous Brazilian writer Jorge Amado lived for most of his life. Some stops at special spots or monuments in these neighbourhoods can be planned if of your interest. The main idea of this tour is to stop at one of these beaches for an hour or so, to get really into the spirit of the city and the locals, that adore the beach life! Let the tropical sun tan your skin, feel the heat, go for a refreshing bath or swim in the ocean and feel like a real "Soteropolitano" (the official name of who's born in Salvador)!
We can adjust the schedule, itinerary and activities of this tour to meet your needs. Please let us know if you have any special requests.

A Recent Review of this tour

Dirk is a wonderful gentleman. He was very patient and gave us a wonderful tour of Salvador. He knows the city really well, and never pushed us to do what we did not want to do. There is a lot of history to the city which he explained in detail. We took two tours with Dirk, and he customized them to suit our timings. Traveling in Brazil, with out knowing Portuguese can be a challenge, and with Dirk, we were at complete ease. I will highly recommend Dirk to anyone travelling to Salvador.
