Lounge, children’s space, wi-fi, showers and great restaurants, all just a step from the beach
It is normal for a tourist who visits Salvador to be called to go to a beach hut and get surprised when arriving there. It happens because most visitors imagine that the hut will be something very simple, with no structure. Far from it. The Bahian huts are places that look like big houses, with restaurant structure and some even with lounges. There are also some that are like clubs.
In this itinerary, we give tips of 08 seafront paradises for all kinds of public. For the family who needs space and safety for the little ones, for groups of young people who want to have fun, good drinks and take lots of photos, and also for those who want to relax feeling the breeze and listening to the waves.
We’ve prepared a list of perfect songs for this experience. Listen now!
