Attraction

Ilha de Itaparica

This beautiful Brazilian island is situated just off the coast of Salvador in All Saint's Bay. There are two ways to reach the island: a boat from Mar Grand at the Terminal TurÍstico MarÍtimo or a catamaran from Terminal MarÍtimo Sao Joaquim in the Cidade Baixa, (although this option is a bit more difficult). Once on the island the best beaches are Praia Ponta de Areia, Praia da Penha, and Barra Grande, or head for the charmingly colonial village of Itaparica.
