Forte Beach, Praia do Forte

4.5
#1 of 452 in Outdoors in State of Bahia
Forte Beach, or Praia do Forte is a beach and coastal village boasting its beautiful beaches as a relaxing alternative to the large crowds of Salvador. While this is a touristy area, there is still a small-town feel with merchants selling wood-fired tapioca pancake. While touring the area, you'll find plenty of places to rent a bicycle that allows you to become acquainted with the quaint streets and several nice trails. Surfing and paragliding are popular sports with rentals available in town. You'll find the best swimming further down the beach past Projeto Tamar. When the tide is out, you'll see tide pools full of sea life that you can even see without a mask and snorkel. A visit to Forte Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Praia do Forte trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Praia do Forte beach is approx. 1h from Salvador Airport and it is very simple to arrive by car. We rented a car at the airport and went there, besides enjoying a beautiful beach day we could enjoy the village with its shops, restaurants, know the Tamar project and snorkel. In the village you find everything you need, from market, showers and still know a little more from the history of there. The most reserved beach where snorkeling has water and clean sand. The beach near Salvador is sure to be one of the best!
