Forte beach, Natal

3.7
#13 of 25 in Beaches in Natal
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. Plan your Forte beach visit and explore what else you can see and do in Natal using our Natal trip planner .

  • Place rather quiet, impractical for those with small children because many traits are Rocky and when the sea is rough it becomes dangerous to approach. Uncrowded by tourists and therefore only a few proper restaurants.
