Bahia is located in the north-eastern part of the country on the Atlantic coast. Geographically it comprises the Atlantic forest or “mata atlântica”; the “recôncavo” region radiating from the Bay (the largest in Brazil) – site of sugar and tobacco cultivation; and the “planalto”, which includes the fabled “sertão” region of the far interior. The state has the longest coastline in Brazil.
