Praia do Forte is a pretty little Brazilian beach town just north of San Salvador, along a coconut and mango grove lined road. Part of the colorful Bahia region, this is a popular seaside tourist destination with sustainable ecological projects. Praia do Forte boasts rich natural history with endangered sea turtles, humpback whales and a host of exotic birds attracted by its extensive coastline and delicate wetland forests. Visit the national reserve which has been working for the preservation of turtles that regularly visit the beaches of Praia do Forte to lay eggs. A charming little church, castle ruins, and beachfront walkways add to its picturesque beauty. The sea, lagoon and pantanal or reserved forest area offer tourists a plethora of kayaking, canoeing and hiking opportunities as well. The little town is also a bird lovers paradise, with opportunities of spotting parakeets, kingfishers, cormorants and kites every day.
