Salvador da Bahia | Surf, Fun and Tan all year !
Salvador da Bahia was founded by the Portuguese in 1549 and made the first colonial capital of Brazil. It is one of the oldest colonial cities in Brazil and the Americas and notable for its cuisine, music and architecture.
The Historic Centre of Salvador was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985. It's known as the "Pelourinho" and stands out for its Portuguese colonial architecture, with historical monuments dating from the 17th to the 19th centuries.
During slavery, most of the slaves set on shore in the Port of Salvador, so there is a high concentration of the black culture and population in the city, being considered the Brazilian Jamaica.
Salvador is well known for having the most point and beach breaks per km in Brazil, with numerous options inside and outside the city. Plenty of room for the local crowd so surfing is very peaceful!
Tourists are also attracted to the City of Joy due to its natural and cultural riches.

Samba and Carnival in Bahia
Brazil will forever be associated with Carnival & Samba!
Samba is a Brazilian musical genre and dance style with its roots in Africa, well recognized around the world as a symbol of Brazil and the Brazilian Carnival.
Considered one of the most popular Brazilian cultural expressions, samba has become an icon of Brazilian national identity so much so that The Bahian Samba de Roda (dance circle) became a UNESCO Heritage of Humanity in 2005.
Carnival is the most famous holiday in Brazil and has become an event of huge proportions. Except for industrial production, retail establishments such as malls, and carnival-related businesses, the country stops completely for almost a week and festivities are intense, day and night, mainly in coastal cities such as Salvador da Bahia which has the largest carnival in the world!
