The Coconut Coast is crossed by BA-099 in its two sections, the Estrada do Coco (Coconut Highway) and its extension, the Linha Verde, equipped with countless means of lodging in a total of 11,611 beds according to the SCT.

The region is famous for its coconut groves, which adorn the almost 200 kilometres of beaches, as well as for the rivers, lagoons, small waterfalls and mangroves that help to balance the marine fauna.
