Great photo opportunity. Iconic Salvador scenery. Other reviewers have remarked that parking can be difficult but honestly, I never have that problem; I just pay a few reais to the attendant working nearby and go on with my day. There's normally someone leaving and I can snag their spot. (I also rarely if ever go on weekends).

There's a bar where you can grab a drink, as well as a drink stand (they accept cash & Pix!) - I highly recommend grabbing a caldo de cana and watching the sunset from here.

It's definitely worth a visit. I'd say you can go easily by yourself with an Uber or walk from the Nosso Senhor do Bonfim Church (aprox. 1 km).
It's a really nice place to take sunset pictures and enjoy the views of Salvador city from another angle, and the All Saints Bay.

At the Southern limit of Salvador's "Península de Itapagipe", you will find "Ponta de Humaitá" (also known as "Ponta de Monte Serrat") and its iconic monuments: "Farol de Humaitá", "Igreja e Mosteiro de Nossa Senhora de Monte Serrat" and "Forte de Nossa Senhora de Monte Serrat". Come on mid afternoon, visit the monuments and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets of the world! You will never forget your visit to "Ponta de Humaitá" and its magic sunset on the waters of "Baía de Todos os Santos"! Unmissable! Enjoy!

The only restaurant there served an awesome "pititinga" fish or manjuba fish (very small fried fish with tomato salad)! Very cold beer. Very simple but excellent service. Great place for pictures! The old church right across from the light house is beautiful!!

Our guide (Ivan Bahia) took us on a round trip in Salvador and de ponta Humaita was a very nice spot. You have an impressive view on the skyline of Salvador and on All Saints Bay (with a beautiful sunset if you get there a bit past 5pm).
Definitly worth a stopover.

Mont Serrat, punta da Humaita is located at one of the points of the Ribeira Peninsula with a small little Church (17th, made by the Italian architect Biaci) and the Mont Serrat Fortress (the last one in the line of defence of the city which was made in the 17/18th century)
The place is best to visit in the afternoon. You can have a drink and have a perfect place to watch the sunset without being overcrowded. A place I really can vouch for ;-)

Located in the Lower City of Salvador on the Peninsula. Visit the fort and surround areas of Boa Viagem, Bonfim, and Ribeira in a half or full day visit to the lower city.

On a weekday morning, I felt quite lonely and not very safe around here - not many people around and the area didn't feel safe. The views are nice - but that's about it.

This point is the tip of the Peninsula da Itapagipe and a quiet place. There is the Igreja e o Mosteiro de Nossa Senhora do Monte Serrat less visited than the well known Igreja de Bonfim up the hill. Here you have a great veiw over the Bay of All Saints
