The city of Salvador, founded in 1549, was the first colonial capital of Brazil. Today, with an estimated population of three million people, it is the largest city in Northeast Brazil and the third largest city in the country. Together with 11 other municipalities, Salvador forms part of the Metropolitan Region of Salvador (RMS), which was established in 1973. An estimated 79 percent of the population of the RMS lives in Salvador. Most of the municipalities in the RMS are not contiguous ; however, they form a metropolitan region due to their economic and social interdependencies.

The Salvador coastline is one of the longest for cities in Brazil. There are 80 km (50 mi) of beaches distributed between the High City and the Low City, from Inema, in the railroad suburb to the Praia do Flamengo, on the other side of town. The capital’s beaches range from calm inlets, ideal for swimming, sailing, diving and underwater fishing, as well as open sea inlets with strong waves, sought by surfers. There are also beaches surrounded by reefs, forming natural pools of stone, ideal for children.
