Fodor's Expert Review Reserva de Sapiranga

Praia do Forte Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

If you have a couple of days to visit Praia do Forte, spend one of them exploring the Reserva de Sapiranga, spread over 600 hectares (1,482 acres) of Atlantic Forest that contains rare orchids and bromeliads. The reserve is a sanctuary for endangered animals. Kayaking is possible on the Rio Pojuca, which flows through the park, and Lago Timeantube, where more than 180 species of native birds have been sighted. Whether you explore by foot, bike, or Jeep, going with an agency, such as PortoMar, is recommended. This local operator also oraganizes zip-lining experiences.
