    If you go to sports games on the beach, you might end up getting a good view like i did in Morro de sao paolo :O)
    It´s certainly a place where the spectators is not your usual aggresive guys trying to pick a fight with the fans from the other team as you can see on the picture :O).

    Fonte Nova

    Soccer is king in Brazil, of course. I saw a few games while in Salvador. This stadium is called Fonte Nova. The club team Bahia used to play its home games here. I got to see a Ba-Vi in this stadium, the classic match up of Bahia vs. Vitória.

    Did you ever experience the colour of the DEEP BLUE SEA? Unbelievable!
    Go linefishing with a local fisherman, he knows how to find the best spots, he will show you how to fish on a longline, he will let you pull his line if you like, and he will do what he can to make sure you dont feel uncomfortable during the trip. He knows what bait to use, and provides ofcourse whatever is needed.
    Snacks and drinks can be arranged, or bring your own.
    The captain is familiar with the sea, the bay, and all the islands around here, and will gladly take you to the best locations for a daytyrip. He is an experienced diver too, and the boat is equipped with air compression equipment.
    If you go during the months of august and september, you will have opportunity to see humpback whales!!!!
    Price goes from 300R$ to go to the nearest islands for up to 6 people.
    Fishingtrips are around 300R$ for 1 prs, and 600R$ for up to4 prs.
    Divingtrips have to be arranged individually.

    Equipment: For fishing, you are welcome to bring your own gear, or you can use the "original stuff" that is long nylonlines with hooks and lead attatched, pulled by hand.
    Bring sunprotection, a hat and some clothes in case of sun and/or rain.

    Beach Soccer

    Praia da Amaralina

    If you like soccer at all you really should join in on a pick up game at the beach. You'll encounter all levels of play. You can either join a game or just juggle in a circle with others. Soccer at the beach can be a sticky issue for some, so try not to play too close to sun bathers. If you don't feel confident enough to play then you should at least watch a game.

    This is where I played a lot since it was near where I lived. This is Praia da Amaralina. The sand was dry and soft here, "areia fofa". You get winded real fast. On Sundays you'll find games down this entire beach.
