Former fishing village with beautiful beaches, natural pools, coconut trees, ponds, waterfalls, trails and ecological reserves, Praia do Forte is a must-see destination for those who will make tourism in Bahia. The charming village full of beautiful shops, cafes, bars and restaurants is the main point for visitors arriving from all over the world to visit the place.
The car access is forbidden in most of the region, which makes it very quiet and safe ride. All this combined with the natural beauty of simple tree-lined village.
Its beaches have a beauty part. To the south, the open sea of the 'resort' beaches. The main access to the sea, very close to the hostel, is the Port Beach, which at low tide becomes a large pool to walk up stand or just float. To the north, the natural piscinais of Papa Gente beach and Lord Beach, the main point of funky class.
Considered important point of environmental preservation, Praia do Forte accommodates various socio-environmental projects, such as Tamar, Humpback Whale Institute and macaws Blue, fighting respectively to prevent the extinction of sea turtles, whales and blue macaws, and the Ecological Reserve Sapiranga who cares for species of native fauna and flora, where visitors are always welcome in their tracks and zoo.
