How to get here

By taxi:

The trip costs from 160 to 200 reais and can be requested directly with the hostel. Just send us an email to We’re happy to suggest some good cab drivers who work in Praia do Forte. This is ideal for couples and families because it’s safer and more comfortable.

Shared van:

We can suggest some van services as well. This is a great choice for groups.

By car:

Leaving Salvador driving towards the north shore, you can take the waterfront road to Itapuã and then head towards the Airport, or take the Paralela Avenue and follow the same direction. Passing directly by the airport, we are 50km away by “Estrada do Coco”.

Departing from Salvador Bus Station:

You should take a Linha Verde bus / LIS (the tickets are sold at the bus station - 1st floor) that comes directly to Praia do Forte. Buses depart from the bus station from Salvador to Praia do Forte at 09:00 p.m. 10:00 p.m. to 03:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. The one-way bus ticket costs around $ 12.00.

Departing from Salvador International Airport:

Only buses departing from the bus station at 9:00 a.m. to 13:00 p.m. and 18:00 p.m. will enter the airport, about 30/40 minutes after leaving the bus station (depending on traffic), and then proceed on to Praia do Forte. It is extremely necessary to be at the bus stop at 9:20, 13:20 or 18:20. Since they are regular public transport buses you have to wave your hand and let them know you’re taking the bus. In case you don’t do that, the bus might not stop for you. We suggest you ask at the airport where the bus stop to Praia do Forte is – Linha Verde Bus or LIS.
