What are the best beaches in or around salvador brazil? looking for something excluded and not to busy. Also would like to know if there are any budget hotels or hostels in the area of these beaches 15 reals for dorms to 60 for a triple bed room? and if so wich?
for nice unspoiled beaches you have to go out of the city. the farer the better. try praia do forte in the north of salvador. take a bus from the rodaviario in salvador. it takes you 45min to go there. from the busstop you walk a bit along the beach and youll be alone. very nice.
another possibility i know is to go on the island. the smaller the island the better the beach. try morro de sao paulo, maybe take another barco to a smaller island from there.
have a nice trip !
check the pousadas sround these places. not sure about the prices, maybe somebody else can help better..
el.moe made some good suggestions although I would say going to Salvador for the beaches is missing the point cos they aint great...
You'll easily find a bed for between 8 and 15 reais the HI in Barra is really nice and you'll get a dorm bed for about 10.
