Introducing Ilha De Itaparica

Itaparica has long been an escape for the residents of Salvador, and its shores are lined with vacation homes. Though the beaches can’t compare with those on Salvador’s northern coast, and Club Med has privatized the best one, they are still fine places if you’d rather not head up the coast. Mar Grande (9km south of Bom Despacho) is perhaps the most likeable town on the island, with bars, restaurants and a relaxed atmosphere.
