Mangue Seco from Salvador
Enjoy the perfect combination of beaches, nature and adventure on a full day guided tour to Mangue Seco, 135 miles (220km) north of Bahia. Experience the quiet village atmosphere, amazing beaches with tall white sand dunes or take a break and relax in the hammock and listen to the waves crashing near you. A perfect family friendly day trip when visiting Brazil!
Located amongst mangrove swamps on the edge of a peninsula between the sea and the river, Manue Seco cannot be accessed by road so you'll be crossing the "Real River," which separates the states of Bahia and Sergipe, in enclosed canoes!
Once on the other side of the river, you can take a buggy car for a 40 minute ride around the tall white sand dunes with stops for photograph opportunities (optional on the day of the tour, not included in the price). The ride finishes at the beach where you can spend time swimming or relaxing while enjoying the restaurants, hammocks and local facilities.
The tour will leave the beach at 3:00pm and head to the village to visit Tieta's House (famous character of a Jorge Amado's novel). Here, you'll freshen up with some ice-cream or enjoy an optional tour that returns to Salvador at 4:00pm.
