Forte beach, Natal

(3.4/5 based on 300 reviews on the web)
Surrounded by coconut palm trees and overlooking the magnificent Atlantic Ocean, at Forte beach you can see large marine turtles, since it is an ecologically sensitive sea-turtle reserve (best time to see these turtles is from September to March when they lay eggs on the shore). It is a calm beach with crystal clear waters, and sparkling white sand. There are a lot of fish, that you may not even need a snorkel and mask to see them. You can explore the natural tide pools formed by the corals, or try the seafood at one of the stylish restaurants. Activities at this beach also include windsurfing, sailing, and scuba diving. The fort which gave the beach its name is no longer standing but you can take a tour of the 16th century Garcia D’Avila Castle ruins, located on a hilltop nearby. There are hiking and biking trails and a zip line. Make Forte beach a centerpiece of your Natal vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Natal trip itinerary maker.

  • Place apparently calm, but you have to keep an eye on belongings, many opportunists lurking around the site. So worth a ticket, if you have been in Strong, otherwise don't waste your time.

  • The set of stones, rocks, is very big around the Fort, too dangerous, risk of death. But knowing the Strong, and your story is 10.
