Beach Nature / Park
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. With our online itinerary creator, Praia do Forte attractions like Forte Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Great Beach area to chill with friends and a cool beer taking in the sights and sounds of this wonderful beach  more »
  • 2h by Bus from Salvador, one can visit this beautiful beach. Really nice for snorkeling, which is not too expensive. The "village" next to the beach is also nice.  more »
  • We enjoyed a lot our visit, lots of nice shops, clean Main Street and good restaurants, reminded me of Bali but much cleaner though!  more »

Where to stay in Praia do Forte

In the main village area of Praia do Forte, find mid-range pousadas (guesthouses), rental apartments, and hostels, with options catering to a wide selection of tastes and budgets. Forego the sea view if you want to economize; fortunately, you don't need to compromise in terms of location, since all of the village's accommodations lie within walking distance of the sea. A couple of luxury resorts occupy more spacious areas, with amenities such as pools, spas, and restaurants. Book in advance, due to the relatively small number of lodgings available.
