Whale Coast Tourism
The Costa das Baleias tourist route starts at the southern limit of Bahia, on the border with Espírito Santo, and extends over 200 km of beaches to Prado, a city south of Porto Seguro.
There are five small coastal municipalities (Mucuri, Nova Viçosa, Caravelas, Alcobaça and Prado), with populations ranging from 21 thousand (Caravelas, Alcobaça) to 38 thousand inhabitants (Nova Viçosa).
Isolated from the rest of the state until the first half of the 20th century, Costa das Baleias only became part of the state and national economy in the 1970s, with the construction of BR-101.
Also for this reason it still preserves a significant part of the coast, in stretches of rivers, waterfalls, mangroves and beaches.
In the urban areas there are signs of Portuguese colonial occupation, a cuisine rich in fish and seafood and a good accommodation structure.
Whale watching tourism gives the route its name.
The activity is practiced in the region of the Abrolhos National Marine Park, an area with the greatest biodiversity in the South Atlantic, 70 km offshore.
