This was a very pleasant and safe area to wander round looking at the shops and finding a restaurant to eat in.

The town is nice, even though it's too much of a tourist trap. You can walk through it in 1 hour, so don't plan to spend too much time there to visit.

Praia do Forte area has a really nice village to visit surrounded by beautiful beaches. You can enjoy attractions like Projeto Tamar or have a rest in one of the beaches as Praia do Lord. During the evening there are several options for dinner and you can spend some time for shopping in the main streets of the village

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.
