Praia do Forte - BA



Praia do Forte is a small fishing village 50 miles north of Salvador along the coast road called Coconut Highway so called because of the many coconut groves along the route.

The village takes its name from the castle built in 1556 by a Portuguese settler called Gárcia D'Ávila . The fortified castle was to be the headquarters of his massive farm, the first farm in Brazil. He brought the first heads of cattle to Brazil and introduced the "slash and burn " technique of deforestation as he cleared the virgin forest for pasture land. In a less destructive manner, he was also responsible for the introduction of the coconut and mango trees to region.

Praia do Forte is now a tranquil resort with a strong emphasis on the preservation of flora and fauna. The resort has ample quality accommodation, numerous restaurants and offers some of the best beaches in Bahia.

Inland from the coast there is a restinga forest, a forest that grows on sandy soil with a very delicate ecosystem.. Near the village there is a small pantanal, a marshy area that is host to some of the most abundant bird life in Bahia. Early morning and late afternoon the pantanal resounds to the calls of snail kites, kingfishers, cormorants and chattering parakeets.

The TAMAR PROJECT was set up in 1980 to preserve the sea turtles, which traditionally lay their eggs on the beaches and were in threat of extinction . One of the most successful preservation projects in Brazil, Praia do Forte is now the headquarters of the extensive national turtle preservation project which receives funding from the World Wildlife Fund.
