The tide goes out really far here so it's easy to walk way out on the rocks and snorkel in shallow water. It also comes in very close too, making it impossible to walk on the beach in the evening (except for a stretch near the big resort). There are lots of shops and restaurants. The restaurants were fairly expensive... More

We took a day tour to Praia do Forte, and it was very funny - couple of streets with a plenty overpriced shops, Tamar project with a very narrow pools with some poor turtles and a lot of plastic mulages and a poor raya who was aloud to touch for everyone. Booo...

This is a beautiful area of Brazil with great hotels and resorts. A visit to the village is a must, with stores, restaurants, and delicious ice cream shops.

Close enough to Salvador, still very safe and peaceful. Highly recommended to visit if you are traveling to Bahia state.

I imagined Praia do Forte to be a sanctuary for turtles, a desert beach. It could not be further from the truth. One access the beach from well manicured streets where trendy shops, bars and restaurants are located. Most of the places are decorated with Asian style - plenty of wood, flowers and colourful textiles. Everything is spotless. Most people... More

This "upmarket seaside village" could be a resort anywhere in the world and lacks any charm or character. We only visited in order to go to the turtle sanctuary, and certainly wasn't worth spending much more time there. Overpriced and fake, there are much nice and much cheaper placers to visit along the costline nearby.

Spent a week in a house that was five minutes from the small town of Praia do Forte. We found it charming. Fun shopping for the ladies, a nice bakery for our morning addiction to chocolate croissants, variety of restaurants and the turtles. Not much English was spoken, one always gets by with hand gestures.

When we booked here is didn't really know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. A couple of things to be aware of when booking here - It's around an hour away from Salvador airport so a taxi on the meter will cost around 200 reals. If you come here in low season it's quite difficult to get excursions booked... More
