Praia Do Forte, Bahia - Brasil This is a sweet place. The main district is only accessible by foot or bike. The transit system is composed of a fleet of double wide surreys powered by bike peddling. Very Eco friendly. Many shops and restaurants line the two lane walkway. Vendors plying their goods, roasted corn on the cob, a Bahian... More

Forte Beach is a very Nice Place, With a great view. You will have good restaurants nearby, a cool hostel and a mall. People doesn't use to swim, the Northern beachs are better for that. ;)
