Forte beach, Natal

3.3
#15 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 .

  • The beach has a sea bath, but dangerous because of the currents. In addition, robberies occur in the region.

  • The lack of security and cleanliness on this beach along with the lack of infrastructure makes this beach beautiful only to see from above the bridge. If you want a beach similar to this but very good go to Camurupim

  • I met the beach because I was watching one of the steps of the Brazilian circuit of Volei de Praia, in the range of the games I went to the edge of the water to refresh, but the place is very dangerous, full of rocks, and passing the rocks the wave surf is very strong , impossible to swim. At low tide forms pools between the stones and the sand. Close to the Reis Magos fort, you can take advantage of the two attractions, with free parking. I believe it is worth the visitation even without being able to swim.
