The Coconut Coast, in the north of Bahia, corresponds to a total of 193 km (120 mi) of coastline, where coconut groves, dunes, rivers, swamps and fresh water lagoons are abundant as well as the presence of the Atlantic Rain Forest. The Green Road,  which goes from Praia do Forte up to the settlement of Cachoeira do Itanhim, in Jandaíra and extends until the border with the state of Sergipe. It crosses this beautiful region maintaining a critical distance from the areas of environmental preservation. For this reason, the route is sometimes more than 10 km (6.2 mi) from the beach. At Praia do Forte, the road meets the Coconut Road (Estrada do Côco) leading to Salvador, passing through spots, which are now integrated in the urban development of the state capital. In this region is located Deputado Luís Eduardo Magalhães International Airport.

The road starts in the surroundings of Salvador International, cutting the cities of Lauro de Freitas and Camaçari. It’s the oldest ecological road of the country, inaugurated in 1993, when it was extended from the Green Line.

The beaches of the Coconut Road are known for their calm, warm waters. The area also has lagoons, rivers and astonishing landscapes. The nature wonders of the region of the Jacuípe, Pojuca and Joanes rivers are also part of the attractions; Joanes River is an excellent spot for nautical sports.

Coconut Coast covers the municipalities of Camaçari, Lauro de Freitas, Mata de São João, Entre Rios, Esplanada, Conde e Jandaíra.

Imbassai is a very quiet village, where you will feel relax and very safe. There are several almost deserted beaches and a river that flows into the sea. From November to March it is possible to see sea turtles spawning on the beach, and in June and July you can see humpack whales. This is a natural and quiet place. We are looking forward to welcoming you!

Taking advantage of its isolation, this deserted beach in 1999, became the first category of nudism in the region. The landscape includes a sea of small waves, surrounded by lush coconut trees and dunes. Such tranquility makes it one of the favorite spots of sea turtles for nesting. The infrastructure is still minimal, with some tents near the village and a beautiful camping area, located around a lagoon behind the dunes.

The beauties of the place served as the backdrop for the movie, "Tieta the Wasteland" (Tieta do Agreste), by Carlos Diegues, based on the novel by Jorge Amado. The long stretch where the river joins the sea is a favorite among visitors. The warm waters and calm baths promote fun enjoyable for the whole family, and offer good conditions for water sports. During low tide you can walk across to the opposite side of the canal, where they are beautiful sand dunes and coconut trees. With tents, camping and restaurant with a good receptive structure in the eyes of visitors.

Wet lowlands full of cattle surround this quiet, working-class beach retreat. While there is little to the town itself - just a few main streets, and a sleepy central plaza - Sítio has a lovely beach with pounding surf (located from 1 km from the plaza). North or south along the coast quickly leads to a desert shore with churning seas and flat sands backed by bluffs topped with coconut trees.(Brazil google book)

It is a tiny, beautiful rustic riverfront fishermen village at the tip of a peninsula formed by Rio Real (Real River) which delineates the Bahia/Sergipe border. The town itself is just a scattering of simple dwellings along sandy paths, a tiny church and plaza, a modern lighthouse and a few friendly guesthouses and restaurants. The town ends at the edge of an enormous expanse of the tall white sand dunes, beyond which the wide flat sands of the Bahian coast stretch to the south. Mangue Seco remote location causes most visitors to come on guided day tours, preventing rapid growth and leaving nights decidedly quiet. Guesthouses can arrange dune-buggy trips through the sand dunes.(Brazil google book)

It's a beach village in Jandaíra, Bahia, Brazil. It is also very famous in Brazil because a soap-opera (telenovela) adaptation of the novel "Tieta do Agreste", by the Brazilian writer Jorge Amado, which was shot on its white beaches in 1996.
