Regular Tour to Forte Beach - Leaving Salvador by Bahia Top Turismo

Praia do Forte is a Brazilian beach located in the homonymous district, in the Bahian municipality of Mata de São João, about 50 km from Salvador. Lots of natural beauty mixed history make Praia do Forte one of the most sought after destinations on the northern coast of Bahia. There are more than 12 km of beaches, with several natural pools formed by reefs along the coast. The coconut trees, the predominant vegetation in this region, make the look even better. Enjoying the beaches and the beautiful scenery invite you to relax. One of the main attractions of the place is to visit the headquarters of Projeto Tamar, an organization dedicated to the preservation and study of sea turtles.

It's beach on an island. Nothing real special about this beach but I would do it again, why? Coz the boat cruise is what makes the trip all worth it :-) Once you done there, you're off to another island (Ilha de Itaparica) before heading back

a trip to Ilha dos Frades is an amazing option for a day off. tours from R$ 50 will take you all day long to amazing beaches close to Salvador. the boat has live music and board service, with fruits included for free in the price and they sell lots of cocktails and beers. don’t miss out the roskas with seasonal fruits, they’re delicious and costs R$ 15. make sure you’ll enjoy a lot this trip!

We went with our family and some friends. The boat ride was relaxing and they served some nice drinks, though expensive. The free fruit was a nice touch though. The water in the island was nice and warm, a good remedy for the hot Brazilian sun. Our kids loved it, even the climb to the church.

Good to place for fruit drinks, beer, and seafood. Nice island to visit in a relaxed atmosphere. Warm Atlantic waters in All Saints´ Bay. One of the 56 islands in the area.
