3 – Bike ride and sea bath
Salvador’s cycling network has increased. In the last few years, it has gone from 38 km to 310 km*. Spaces for cyclists are spread throughout the Bahian capital, what is good for getting your body moving and for those who want to enjoy the incredible landscapes of the city while cycling.
Outdoor life is part of everyday life for those who live in the Stella Maris neighborhood. Now, one of the most beautiful stretches of waterfront is becoming more modern, accessible and can now be enjoyed by visitors and tourists. The new seafront area is beautiful, going all the way to Praia do Flamengo. Starting the day there is an excellent idea. Take the opportunity to bike along the bike path or a walk along the boardwalk.
If you are making a tour with a group of friends or family, it is good to go to the soccer field or the sand volleyball court. The new waterfront also has space for a picnic, and the kids will love the park and the children’s skate park.
In this same area, in front of the kiosks, there is a large formation of natural pools during low tide. Stella Maris and Flamengo are in one of the most environmentally preserved locations on the coast of Salvador, with a large cover of restinga vegetation. After having fun on the bike path or boardwalk, keep an eye on the tide. If it’s low, the suggestion is to enjoy the natural pools that are formed in the region.
