In the North-East, in Salvador, All Saints' Bay extends over an area of more than 386 square miles. Vessels sail over numerous reefs, some thirty islands, and some ten small islands. Frades Island is distinguished by its beaches of white sand, its springs, waterfalls, and fishing villages with colonial houses. Itaparica Island is the most famous and the biggest. As well as having an average-sized village, it has a Club Med and various restaurants. To get to Itaparica, you can take the ferry or use the occasion to have a mini-cruise on a traditional sailing boat. The cruise programme takes a day, and includes a stop on Frates Island and lunch on Itaparica. Before returning to Salvador, you are at leisure to benefit from the island's very beautiful beaches.
