Praia do Forte is located in the state of Bahia, northeastern Brazil. It is famous for the beauty of its crystalline beaches and for being a bucolic locality, ideal for those who want to relax. In addition to the beaches, one of its main attractions is the TAMAR Project, a project that aims at the preservation of sea turtles. There are aquariums and tanks for breeding sea turtles that can be visited by the public. In the center of Praia do Forte you can find several ateliers with handicrafts typical of the region.
The locality developed around the Castle of Garcia D'Avila - also known like House of the Tower - from 1551 and was the largest landholding of the American continent, and later it became a village of fishermen. Praia do Forte still maintains characteristics of the time of the fishing village in the way of living and even in fish-rich food. Its tranquility is a charm amid the paradisiacal nature.
