Getting There & Away

Praia do Forte is 3km off the highway. Linha Verde has regular departures to Praia do Forte from Salvador’s bus station (R$10, 1¾ hours.) Four daily departures go directly to Praia do Forte (at 9am, 9:45am, 6pm and 7pm at the time of writing) though other buses can get you there, too: just ask at the Linha Verde desk. Buses make the return journey regularly between 7am and 6:30pm. Informal Kombi vans make the same trip to Salvador for the same price – wait near the bus stop for pick-up.
