    We were anchored here for 1 week. Well protected from all winds. We left our boat at Marina at no cost. Behind the Marina there is a mineral source with free taps to get free water, fill several 10 gallon gallons and fill the tank of our sailboat. There are some markets, bakeries, restaurants and ice cream shop but close to the Marina. If you need to go to Salvador you can take a taxi to the ferry and cross it by boat. It is cheaper to stay anchored here and take the Salvador ferry than to stay at Porto Salvador Marina, but you will spend a lot of time going back and forth by ferry.

    Ficamos ancorados aqui por 1 semana. Bem protegido de todos os ventos. Deixamos nosso bote na Marina sem nenhum custo. Atrás da Marina existe uma fonte mineral com torneiras para pegar água de graça, enchermos vários galões de 10 litros e enchemos o tanque do nosso veleiro. Existem alguns mercados, padarias, restaurantes e sorveteria mas proximidades da Marina. Se precisar ir a Salvador é possível pegar um táxi até o ferry e de lá atravessar de barco. É mais barato ficar ancorado aqui e pegar o ferry posta Salvador do que ficar na Porto Salvador Marina, porém você gastará muito tempo indo e voltando de ferry.

    Free anchorage. Beware of buoys that belong to someone! Prefer anchor anchorage outside the buoy zone .... The pontoon welcomes free annexes. There are toilets (with sink, toilet and shower) fee for a small fee (2 reais without hot water, 3 with hot water) ... We pay the lady who does the cleaning around. Right next to these bathrooms, there is a water source with tap. Many locals use cans too! Water is free and famous! Next to the toilets there is the only ticket dispenser in the village. We put his appendix free to the pontoon. You can also dock at the pontoon depending on availability.

    Mouillage gratuit. Attention aux bouées qui appartiennent à quelqu'un ! Préférer le mouillage sur ancre en dehors de la zone des bouées.... Le ponton accueille gratuitement les annexes. Il y a des sanitaires (avec lavabo, toilettes et douche) payants pour une somme modique ( 2 reais sans eau chaude, 3 avec eau chaude) ... On paye à la dame qui fait le ménage aux alentours. Juste à côté de ces sanitaires, il y a une source d'eau avec robinet. Beaucoup de locaux utilisent des bidons aussi ! L'eau est gratuite et réputée ! A côté des sanitaires il y a le seul distributeur de billet du village. On met son annexe gratuitement au ponton. On peut aussi s'amarrer au ponton suivant les disponibilités.

    Very well-protected anchorage close to the marina and settlement of Itaparica, which has a few small supermarkets, shops, restaurants. You can even take a minivan to the ferry to Salvador.
