Projeto Tamar, Praia do Forte

4.3
#2 of 91 in Zoos & Aquariums in Brazil
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Dedicated to the protection of sea turtles along the Brazilian coast, Projeto Tamar is a conservation project that allows you to view several types of turtles and a couple of sharks. If you're interested in eco-tourism, this is must-see attraction. The organized grounds contain large tanks where you can view turtles in an environment that mimics their wild habitat. While this is an interesting attraction all year round, it is especially touching from October to March when you can watch the release of baby turtles into the wild. To visit Projeto Tamar and other attractions in Praia do Forte, use our Praia do Forte tourist route planner.

  • It is worth visiting the project, there are several animals for observation. The kids love it, I highlight the albino green turtle.

  • Excellent place to visit with kids a little messy and without organization as the programming presented but worth the walk.

  • I've met the project of Florianópolis, but the da Bahia is the best so far. Loved it! I came back a second time. The store's design is a luxury. I love everything.

Where to stay in Praia do Forte

In the main village area of Praia do Forte, find mid-range pousadas (guesthouses), rental apartments, and hostels, with options catering to a wide selection of tastes and budgets. Forego the sea view if you want to economize; fortunately, you don't need to compromise in terms of location, since all of the village's accommodations lie within walking distance of the sea. A couple of luxury resorts occupy more spacious areas, with amenities such as pools, spas, and restaurants. Book in advance, due to the relatively small number of lodgings available.
