Forte beach, Natal

(3.4/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • As its name suggests, the beach is right next to the Forte dos Reis Magos. Very quiet for bathing, as there is a reef that leaves the calm water for shower, very good to bring children. Due to low movement of people on weekdays, has few stalls on site, affordable to anyone visiting the beach.

  • The beach has stones that form a pool on the beach .... Have stalls with Chair and beach umbrella. I can buy a water charge minimum of 10 actual consummation. Worth a quick stop, but not for all day ...

  • Surrounded by coral reef, this beach offers swimming pools, very beautiful and perfect for those traveling with small kids!
