Forte Beach, Praia do Forte

4.5
#1 of 361 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.

  • I spent Christmas 2017 there and would be more a month! Visit the beaches, because it will be unforgettable! Go late for main street, a beer is a wonderful choice. Another very cool thing is to visit the Tamar project.

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.
