When Do You Want To Go?

Welcome to 'Hippie Town'

Arembepe sits on a stretch of coast known as the Coconut coast, which runs from just north of Salvador up to the resort town of Praia do Forte. It is easy to reach from the city of Salvador or from Salvador airport, being just a short drive or bus ride up the coast.

The town became famous in the 1960s for having what is alleged to be the first hippie commune in Brazil.  It can count Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin and Roman Polanski amongst its more famous ex-residents. 

Then the hippies mostly moved on and Arembepe went back to being a sleepy fishing village again, mostly overlooked by tourists. A small group of alternative lifestylers remain though in a community just outside of the town known as Aldeia Hippie, offering an interesting link to Arembepe’s past.
