Thanks to its carefully managed conservation projects, Praia do Forte has developed over the decades into an established family-orientated resort without losing its Bahian character. Salvador’s most convenient beach escape, it’s lively at weekends and holidays but miles of palm-lined sands mean there’s room for everyone. Our clients have been enjoying holidays here for over 30 years.

Day 1: Transfer (1.5 hrs) to your hotel in Praia do Forte. Spend 3 nights at Pousada Porto da Lua, a mid-range hotel with a great location right behind the beach.

Days 2 and 3: Relax! This bit of the Brazilian coastline is classic soft sand and genuflecting palm trees, backed by protected Atlantic rainforest. Enjoy your days on the beach or wandering through the colourful village, now home to boutiques and cafés. The Projeto Tamar turtle project is based at the village and much of the wider area is a conservation zone, with pleasant walks along the beach and inland.

Day 4: Transfer to Salvador airport (1 hr) for your onward flight.
