We came here to surf and celebrate our one year anniversary and we were not disappointed. The center of town is touristy, but you can find some great restaurants and people watching!

The beach here is truly wonderful. There are many restaurants and shops. However this village is really expensive to go. Anything there is paid and the value is not fair. Besides that the village doesn´t show real life of inner people. It is only a touristic place.

Nice beach to visit. Calm waves, warm water. Gets quite busy, so don't expect peace and quiet. Lots of restaurants and bars nearby as well as showers when you come off the sand. Close to Projeto Tamar as well as the Church of San Francisco.

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
