Keep the beach clean-Think environment!


Two days after the completion of the first event on the 2004 Swatch-FIVB World Tour, (the Forteleza womenís Open), the first menís tournament begins in Salvador, a perfect place to launch the menís component of the Swatch-FIVB World Tour.

Salvador is literally surrounded by beaches, perfect for Beach Volleyball and a jaw-dropper for all tourists. People go to relax, cool off, chill, socialize, eat, drink, dance, play Beach, surf, and of course swim and the beaches vary from crowded city beaches great for meeting people to tropical idylls a short way up the coast.

And with such a wonderful venue to perform in all of the best international menís Beach Volleyball teams will be in action in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its beauty and unique features make it a primary target for international tourism and for the Swatch-FIVB World Tour.

Famous for its history, its hospitable people and the legacy left by people from other continents, Salvador is one of a select band of cities which has an electricity you feel from the moment you arrive.

For a start its shore is one of the longest in Brazil, including 34 kilometers of beach, spreading across Cidade Alta and Cidade Baixa. The beaches located between Cidade Baixa and Porto da Barra are bathed by the calm waters of Todos os Santos Bay and the others by the Atlantic Ocean.

Salvador looks onto a bay, the BaŪa de Todos os Santos, and is ringed with beaches and dotted with tropical islands. To the northeast of the city a string of fishing villages lies along a beautiful coastline Ė in short, no lack of places of inspiration.

And thereís no doubt the menís players on the 2004 Swatch-FIVB World Tour wonít be lacking any either in what promises to be a superb opening to the season ahead.
