Praia do Forte

Praia do Forte is located 80km north of Salvador in a preserved area with 12km of semi deserted beaches surrounded by lush coconut trees. It is a natural and historical sanctuary that deserves a special attention. Besides the tourism because of its high quality services and pristine beach, there are also some important projects of protection of endangered sea species and sea turtles, such as the famous Tamar Project. The cultural revitalization of the ancient ruins of a Portuguese castle of XVI century called Castelo Garcia d’Avilla is a must.

The main drag (Alameda do Sol) is a pedestrian walkway lined with nice restaurants and boutiques and dotted with trees, leading to an adorably tiny church. Surrounding the village there are a lagoon for canoeing and the Sapiranga forest reserve, wich has hiking and biking trails and a zip line. If you can, time your visit for the full moon and walk along the beach at sunset, when the sun turns the waters of Timeantube River red as the moon rises over the sea.
