Praia do Forte Accommodation

Hi there,

What's the best accomodation option in Praia do Forte after Tivoli Eco-Resort? I'm spending 4 nights in Pdf and was intending to stay at the Eco-Resort but it's really very expensive...

After doing some research, I came up with 2 options:

- Pousada Farol das Tartarugas

- Pousada Refúgio da Vila

Are these 2 good options? In terms of location how are they compared to the Eco-Resort?

One of the problems I read is that the beach in front of some hotels isn't good to swim because of the corals and you have to walk somewhere where you can swim... Will I have a problem with these 2 options?

You could also look at Porta da Lua, which is pretty close to one of the deeper pools to swim in. A lot of the coast at PdF has coral reefs, which make for rough waves and shallow tide pools, depending on tide. That's another reason I prefer Guarajuba.

Both pousadas are very nice, and close to the villa. All beaches around that side have corals. But great natural swmming pools to relax in and fresh up. Porto da lua is my favorite as its simple, cheap and sea front!

But you can also rent houses in Praia do Forte, seafront or not! Msg me if you need any options!

Best to look at the date of the post and/or OP's other posts. This OP is probably already a long time home.
