Regular Tour to Forte Beach - Leaving Salvador by Bahia Top Turismo

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.

Despite being a historical and meaningful place of Brazil, the site itself is sufferings from abandonment and violence. In my recent visit with my family, we were attacked by a group of five people who jumped on us and stole some of our jewelry and tried to steal some of other belongings. All that situation happened near a police car that was empty and we couldn’t find any cop near to report that situation immediately. We also tried to get help from some locals that were indifferent and just said that this happens a lot. So I definitely do not recommend it to anyone.

visiting this neighborhood is the main reason, although not the only one, to visit the city. The historic center is magnificent, very beautiful, with large buildings, very safe, full of police, although not all buildings are open in these times of covid. highly recommended.

Beautiful place to see with a dark history of colonial times which included degradation of African people

Our cruise arrived in Salvador on Feb. 26th and almost everything was closed as people recovered from celebrating Carnaval. There were a few tourist booths, selling food, drink and souvenirs but all churches, museums, etc, were closed. I was by myself but felt very safe and did enjoy seeing the outside of all the beautiful buildings. Things could be in a bit better repair but one can certainly see the past glory of Salvador in this square.
