About
Praia do Forte is a Brazilian beach located in the homonymous district, in the Bahian municipality of Mata de São João, about 50 km from Salvador. Lots of natural beauty mixed history make Praia do Forte one of the most sought after destinations on the northern coast of Bahia. There are more than 12 km of beaches, with several natural pools formed by reefs along the coast. The coconut trees, the predominant vegetation in this region, make the look even better. Enjoying the beaches and the beautiful scenery invite you to relax. One of the main attractions of the place is to visit the headquarters of Projeto Tamar, an organization dedicated to the preservation and study of sea turtles.

TAMAR is a wonderful project, the tour was so-so...
Sep 2019
First (unfortunately), the logistics. We were supposed to be picked up at the hotel at 8 a.m, but a minibus only arrived at 8:45 - after the hotel reception made inquiries on our behalf. We joined the main tour bus about 20 minutes later at a random point on the main highway north. I assume they forgot to pick us up... The tour duration is listed as 8 hours, so we expected to be back at the hotel by about 4 p.m - but were dropped off at about 6:30 p.m. Luckily, we had no specific plans for the evening.

TAMAR project is wonderful, the project visitor center is similar to a small marine zoo. OK, but not a must-see. The village resort is quite beautiful, but expect many tourist shops. The public beach at the resort is small and not really inviting. None of our group bathed there.

Guarajuba beach, where we spent over 2 hours, is beautiful, but don't expect pristine white sand and clear water. The sand is a typical 'sand' color (i.e. light brown), and the water somewhat silty. For those interested in swimming, there was a strong rip current.

Our tour guide was very friendly, and although we were the only English speakers on the bus (others spoke Portuguese, mostly, or Spanish) devoted sufficient time to us. Overall, though, it appears that the tour is seen primarily as a day at the beach with a little souvenir hunting, not a didactic trip.

The logistics to pick up our customers in the pillory is complicated because buses do not enter, so the transfer of vehicles, the tour is all day, the departure from the beach is at 16:00 and not the arrival at the hotel, it was very good to be able attend to you.
