Salvador, Brazil

Parque Abaeté

Parque Abaeté surrounds the Abaeté Lagoon and the unique white sandbanks of Salvador’s coast. Adventurous runners may enjoy exploring this area on foot. While there are some well-maintained concrete and dirt paths near the lagoon and main entrance, there is also a scenic network of sandy trails reaching out into the dunes. A rough circle around the lagoon is about 2.5 km, but keep in mind there is not a good map of the area available online. If you do venture into the dunes, bring plenty of water, a friend, and prepare for hot and dry conditions.
