Praia do Forte is a very pretty and exiting place to go to!...The village seems touristy but nice.

Waves can be sometimes strong,... More

Little town, nice shops, nearby not so crowded beaches, warm sea, perfect for swimming and surfing in nearby areas, safe and with great restorants to choose. It worth a visit but rent a tour or a car. To go by public bus take 2 hours.

Praia do Forte is a small and beautiful village about 65 km north of Salvador da Bahia with a wonderful beach. The beach has lots of corals and you can do some fun snorkling in the natural pools!

Loved the beaches, the natural pools are wonderful. We managed to see fish just snorkeling alongside the shore. The little town has its magic and it's definitely a place we will revisit in the future
