Forte de Santo Antonio da Barra (Farol da Barra)

On the hill of Farol da Barra, behind the Nautical Museum, visitors and inhabitants of Salvador meet to contemplate the magnificent sunset. The feeling of seeing the sun hiding in the water (on the east cost!) is really special and relaxing time. Besides this special and relaxing moment, you can have fun at Barra’s beach by doing Stand Up Paddle or by Scuba Diving to see fishes, coral reef and the wreckage of the Ship Maraldi. After you had fun, you can also visit the Nautical Museum to know more about nautical history of the Bahia.
