Itaparica is a Brazilian island in All Saint's Bay (Portuguese: Baia de Todos os Santos), about 10 km from the city of Salvador, Bahia. It is known for hosting the Sul America Open tennis competition (1986-1990). In the island, there are two cities: Itaparica and Vera Cruz.
Itaparica can be reached in about one hour by ferry from Salvador. The smaller passenger-ferry departs from near the Mercado Modelo, while the larger car-ferry goes from about two km north to Bom Despacho. The state of Bahia is considering constructing a (11.6km long) bridge between Salvador and Itaparica.
Itaparica has 40 km of beaches suitable for tourists and exuberant tropical vegetation.
