  • Praia do forte has crystal clear water, but which are damaged by the amount of garbage that's in the sand, and even at sea. The kiosks are precarious and many charge expensive (especially those who receive tour) for a food that's nothing special. There are almost no support infrastructure at the beach or kiosks, since fresh water showers, until lack of stairs or ramps. The look is nice but hardly explored.

  • Very nice and cosy place. Very good for rest. Too bad you didn't get in because I was in retirement.

  • The beach is good, quiet, sea without waves, but very expensive to eat on the beach. I thought bad I had ice cream anywhere. The Fort is under construction, but it's still a pretty cool ride.
