Set amid lush tropical gardens and renovated in 2011, Villetta Dunas is just 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) from Salvador's famous Itapua Beach with its picture-perfect lighthouse. One side of the beach is lapped by calm, reef-protected waters, and on the other side, powerful, unprotected, Atlantic waves draw local surfers and those who love to watch this exciting sport. Guests can also spend a day at Jaguaribe Beach, 1.8 miles (3 kilometers) from Villetta Dunas. Here, the sea is relatively calm and natural pools form during low tide. At both beaches, kiosks sell local snacks, fresh seafood, and ice-cold beer. Also within easy reach is Parque Dunas Do Abaeté, a natural preserve with towering white sand dunes and blue lagoons. Salvador's city center, including the historical Pelourinho district, is about 12.4 miles (20 kilometers) away, across the peninsula.
