IN PORTO SEGURO...
There are many things to do apart from enjoying the sun on golden beaches or dance day and night in the typical Cabanas (bars & restaurants) accompanied by various kinds of music, dances and shows. We’ll help you discover these and many other tourist and natural attractions...
The Cidade Historica: it's the oldest part in Porto Seguro, important for its historical, architectural, cultural and landscape value. A UNESCO-protected World Heritage Site, it’s composed exclusively of jealously preserved old colonial buildings and of tropical gardens with fruit trees and flowers. You can’t miss the walk through the old town to visit the three churches and the museum (the most massive building, once used as a prison), surrounded by tropical gardens, with views on the beaches protected by the coral reefs and the ocean... plants, colors, sounds, convey all the charm of Bahia and the saudade of the past.
Mount Pascoal: visits to national parks and indigenous reserves. Many families of the indigenous tribes (Pataxó) live in the National Park of Monte Pascoal (Aldeia Barra Velha ) 50 km from Porto Seguro. The visits are regulated and are allowed only with permission and accompaniment. Cross the Virgin Forest (Mata Atlantica), as when Cabral, the first to arrive in Brasil, saw and discovered this paradise.
Beaches: the coast of Porto Seguro is divided between north and south and stretches from St. Andre (North) to Caraiva (South) for a total of about 80 km. There are beaches for every taste... Who is looking for fun will certainly find it at the beach of Rio dos Mangues (or Barramares), with a lot of young people, sports, dancing and live music. Some other alternatives are the beaches of Taperapuãn and Itacimirim. For the followers of naturism, there are many beautiful beaches such as the Nudism Beach, Pedra Grande, Itapororoca and Praia do Taipe. The most famous ones for diving are: Parracho, Mundai, the Coroa Vermelha Recife on the Muta’ Beach, the Coqueiros Beach and the Nativos Beach. For the landscape lovers: Barra Velha, the Lagoa Azul Beach, Rio da Barra Beach and Do Espelho Beach. The latter was nominated the third best one of the Brazilian coast; its name comes from the transparency of its water that reflects the surrounding landscape like a mirror. Those who like to swim in a calm sea can visit Caraiva Beach, Juacema or Satu Beach, Curuípe Beach and Mucugê Beach. Nature lovers can go trekking between Arraial D'Ajuda and Trancoso. Many beaches have beach equipment such as the banana-jets, kayaks and boats.
Events: in Porto Seguro there are plenty of events, certainly the most important being the Carnival, the most animated in Bahia after the one in Salvador. Trios elétricos, blocks and cordões (carnival groups) drag thousands of tourists. Capoeira, Lambada and Zook, ravines, are the characteristic dances that can be learnt in schools (Casas da Cultura), or just by observing them in the streets or in other characteristic places; the typical sound of the berimbau indicates their presence.
La Passarela do Álcool: this is the main pedestrian street, the starting point of the nightlife in Porto Seguro. Here tourists usually stay for a few hours from 10.00 pm to 1.00 am, then go to the various nightclubs (the cabanas on the beach). The passarela is a succession of restaurants, typical shops, small stands of various objects and colourful Capeterie (small characteristic cabins where you can drink alcoholic and soft drinks, like the Capeta, made with fresh fruit chosen by the customer).
