Projeto Tamar, Praia do Forte

4.6
#1 of 341 in Parks in State of Bahia
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. Plan my Praia do Forte trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • It's a nice ride, although I don't like captivity, your role in environmental education. The site is well organized and beautiful.

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.
