Too Cool na Bahia and Diogo beach: chosen for its charm, this unique location is surrounded by coconut trees, amazing sand dunes and the Imbassaí river where we can swim after the beach… but that’s not all! Diogo is situated in one of the very few sections of the Bahian coast that has not been adversely affected by tourism. The village of Diogo is a genuine Bahian village with its bars and small locally owned restaurants. Whilst the pousada is not located on the beach the 25-minute walk to get there takes you through a wonderful series of sand dunes that has long been a protected nature reserve. For this reason the beach is often deserted, visited only by a few surfers. The sea turtles come to lay their eggs there and in the morning we can see their tracks on the sand. If you feel more social, in 10 minutes we can be at one of the beach huts where customers are generally local and we can order seafood or a ‘moqueca de peixe’. We can even walk to the village of Imbassaí along the seashore, an hour and half of pure pleasure. The pousada offers various activities such as river kayaking, surfing or a visit to the Tamar turtle protection centre at Praia do Forte, 20 km away. In the nearby village of Santo Antônio there is a centre for handicrafts and one of the best restaurants in the area, the “Sombra da Mangueira” (‘Shade of the Mango Tree’).
Days 5 to 6
Make the most of this privileged location! You can organize your return to Salvador or directly to the airport from the pousada.
