Positively surprised. Very nice little town, with pleasant traffic free main street. Lots of restaurant, small shops, bars. Nice atmosphere and everything close to the nice white beach.

When we first arrived for a holiday here in 1997, we thought we had died and awoken in a tropical heaven. There are some very nice things about Praia do Forte, Projeto Tamar, beach side pousadas, the Tivoli resort, restaurants, music, bars, hotels, and some rentable condominium suites, but it is getting very commercial, there are too many panhandlers and...

I loved this place. The water was nice, the natural pools during low tide is wonderful. Clean beaches, lots of places not to crowded. The sad thing is the commercializing of the place - but you can find some great pearls if you speak with the local guides. I would love to come back!
