Considered the starting point of the Brazilian history and culture, the Discovery Coast was declared World Natural Heritage by UNESCO, in 1999. Surrounded by several natural attractions – such as beaches, bays, inlets, cliffs, coral reefs, mangroves and navigable rivers – the region has favorable conditions for adventure tourism and ecotourism. Many paradisiacal beaches enchant the visitors. In Porto Seguro, the most sought after ones are Tacimirim, Taperapuã and Mundaí; in Cabrália, Coroa Vermelha, Mutary and Arakakaí stand out; Trancoso has the beaches of Nativos dos Coqueiros and Nudism with good options for swimming; in Arraial D’Ajuda, the beaches of Degaldo, Mucugê and Parracho attract lots of tourists; those who visit Caraíva must visit Espelho beach, which, located in the middle of a cliff, is among the ten best ones in Brazil; at the Discovery Coast you can also find the beaches of Santo André, das Tartarugas (turtles) and Santo Antonio. The region’s nature wonders are well known by visitors, especially those who enjoy extreme sports that for now seem to have a closer contact with such attractions. During ultralight flights it’s possible to admire all the beauty of the region, from a different angle. The Discovery Coast has ideal spots for diving, windsurf, surf, kite surf, trekking, horse rides, among others. It’ss worth remembering that the fun doesn’t end here. The region has a much differentiated nightlife. Contrary to what happens in most littoral areas, where the day activities are more attractive than the night ones, at the Discovery Coast night leisure is also a must. It’s difficult to decide whether to enjoy the day or the night. Generally, visitors end up enjoying both, showing that sleeping is not the priority. The hours are so atypical that in many of the region’s cities, shops are open until late, selling clothes, crafts, etc. The events promoted by show houses, beach kiosks and night clubs, which always end at dawn, guarantee the fun throughout the night. The fun never ends. For more than 500 years this region has been visited by various explorers seeking for the most unusual products. Nowadays, the explorers are better known as"tourists", that look for high doses of adrenaline and lots of history, in a scenery composed by sun, sea and tranquility.
