The beach and the landscape is so beautiful, near to restaurants and commercial centres. Have the best sand ever. However the users are so impolite giving away their waste and destroying the beach and the entire ecosystem. As a Brazilian I am very disappointed. But, I still recommend the beach in non-vacation seasons, as the number of visitants and waste... More

Forte is a place where you can walk, enjoy restaurants or do some activity like surf or swim. I visit this beach every year with my family.

We walked from the dunnes over to the fort for a nosey. Excellent little panoramic view from the fort and its little soldier tower was nice. We took a wee photo from there too. A little chamber up the rocky path in havianas can be tricky when wet but manageable. We visited in August which can be a bit cold... More
