The Praia de Itapuã is a palm-fringed, sandy beach & sea-turtle nesting spot with water sports & food/drink stands. I had to visit here because of the Brazilian song “Tarde em Itapoa” (by Toquinho & Vinícius de Moraes)—if you’ve never heard it, look it up (you will probably love it).
Itapuã is a neighborhood in the north part of the city of Salvador in the state of Bahia, which is famous for its culture, cuisine, history and architecture. If you’re in Salvador, you should come up to see this famous beach, the nearby lighthouse and the great restaurants. You won’t be disappointed.

The beach itself is nice but the area is surrounded by shanty towns, so DO NOT bring any valuables with you, don't show any bracelets or pendants, especially on sunny weekends, when it tends to get overcrowded!

Amazing long shore beach with many bars, live music and just great atmosphere. Loved every minute. The water is clear, the sun is shining, perfect place. Very easy reachable by public transportation from Centro.

While the beaches in this area are pleasant to look at and have nice palm trees, visit them at your own risk. I had a great time in Itapua in 2008. It has changed A LOT since. Within the space of an hour, I saw a woman dancing like a stripper for a guy in front of her kid, got fleeced out of 50 reais, and saw a guy take out his manparts, urinate copiously, then proceed to massage his junk in front of dozens of people. We could not get out of there fast enough.

The Itapuã beach is famous because of a music, but the beach is not as beautiful as the music states. The sand has a strange color, the beach is full of rocks and the only thing nice is a walk to the lighthouse

I don´tt know why, but I am not a big fan of this beach. many many years ago it used to be a very nice place to go, there is even a song written by a famous Brazilian singer about its beauty. However, it beacame a dangerous place to go due to some robbers. Then it changed a little bit again and now you have guys playing soccer every weekend early in the morning and families walking around. There are also small nature swiming pools where kids can play safely from the waves, and you can walk on the big rocks around. Depending on the tide, the water might take the whole place and you may not be able to see any sand where you can walk... in the average, it is a nice view and that is all... :)

This place is not recommended for bathing or stayiing. Its actually even a bit dangerous, because little thieves and nasty people hangs around. Also the water isnt proper for bathing. Its a shame, thsi place was idyllic, many years ago.

The Itapuã beach is a small but charming beach. It a famous beach in the entire Brazil because of brazilian popular musics. Anyway, it is worth to be visited.
