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

7 reviews

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.

I’ve been to this MAM before and praised it. This time, nothing to praise. The collection is stagnant; the site doesn’t work, there is no information; the employees don’t know anything and service is very lousy! Something wrong is going on. The MAM looks abandoned! What happened to the previous manager? Don’t loose your time and transportation. The only thing that remains good is the jazz music which is outsourced! A real pity!

The museum itself is small. We tried different days to visit and each day some part of it was closed, even if google said otherwise. I bought a book at its store but when I decided to open it was all glued due to humidity. Next day I came back to changed in the morning. It was closed. But the lady from the store was very nice and gave me back my money. Very sunset by it side though.

The museum itself is very small. There are two small parts. It's free. There are probably around ten to 15 pieces. Nice and spacious. It was religious modern art. Quite different to what I have seen before. You don't need longer than 20 minutes to half an hour. It's super busy but not sure if that was because it was near sunset. Clean. There is a small gift area and a chaotic and busy coffee shop. The sunset is stunning as are the views! The main issue here is security as the favelas are right next to it and a small beach. It is in the middle of nowhere and a lot of muggings apparently. We got a taxi to take us and wait for us so was good. There are not many taxis about otherwise. It is located on the main road so you may be able to flag one down after. I suggest even though more pricey is to be safe and get a taxi to take you and wait for you.

Visiting Salvador's "Museu de Arte Moderna" is absolutely a must! Located at historical "Solar do Unhão", the museum follows a modern concept of museology, including permanent and temporary exhibitions, film sessions, art classes, a sculptures park and jazz sessions on special days. A café and awesome sunsets over "Baía de Todos os Santos" complete the scene. "Solar do Unhão" dates from the 17th century and has been restored over the years. Acclaimed Italian architect Lina Bo Bardi undertook the task to restore, back in 1959, the old manor house. A monumental staircase located right inside of the main exhibition hall was designed by her. Its wood fittings follow the same techniques used on the manufacturing of ancient ox carts. Amazing! Try to visit - if it is opened - the lovely chapel at the museum's entrace: "Capela de Nossa Senhora da Conceição". Before going, call and check opening hours. Use taxis at all times and do your best to be there for sunset. You won't regret! Enjoy!

You can see this is 30-50 minutes . Nothing that special . What I did like is the buffet in the cafe outside . I think it was 40 r. You can take an Uber to get here .
