Imbassai Beach, Praia do Forte

4.1
#4 of 10 in Things to do in Praia do Forte
An alternative to a saltwater beach, Imbassai Beach snuggles up to a river where you can swim in fresh water. You can also explore the plant life along the banks or simply rest by the water. Traditional restaurants, or barrcas, dot the landscape and serve salty, fried snacks. For a less expensive option, bring a picnic or take an inexpensive raft ride down the river to find other eating options.

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.
