If people watching, night life, shops and tourist facilities are your thing, then stop at Praia de Forte. If on the other hand you are looking for the perfect, palm fringed, white sand beach- pristine (so very clean) and virtually deserted then head 100 km North to Mangue Seco. We have travelled extensively and this is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt beaches we have found- miles (as far as the eye can see) of beautiful white sand, warm water, with a few beach shacks at the Northern end. NO development. Mangue Seco is a sand bar and reached by boat from Pontal on the other side of the lagoon which separates Mangue Seco from the mainland. On arrival into Pontal, a man ran across to show us where to park up the car. He then carried our bags to his power boat, informed Pousada O Forte that we were coming, and we set off across the lagoon. What better way to travel, and on arrival our bags were collected into a barrow and wheeled to Pousada O Forte. This is a simple Pousada facing the lagoon, with a short walk to the beach (where there are no accommodation options). The Pousada provides a good breakfast, and a short, simple and tasty evening menu. The swimming pool is excellent. Rooms are relatively small, and simple, good air conditioning, somewhat dubious electrics, and a comfortable bed. We stayed 2 nights, you could stay longer, but we’d advise against a 1 night stay – you simply would not do justice to this oh so beautiful beach.

We spent almost a week in this pousada. There is no better place to stay in Mango Seco, close to the beach, close the village. The pousada can arrange everything for you anyway, our trip from Salvador to the pousada were perfectly organized, the staff is very helpful and some of them speak very good french. I highly recommend this place if you want to relax and enjoy endless beaches.

Let's be fair. There is no other place around to compare this pousada with. But don't get me wrong, this place has many great highlights. Nice location, helpful and attentive staff, great pool and very well maintained. Perhaps a little less rusticness in the rooms might level up the overall comfort, but nevertheless, I do understand that a small hotel, in the middle of dunes, between the sea and a river, might call for it. The main point for me was the food. Great dinner and an amazing breakfast. It has some weak points, yes it does. May need some updating and renewal in the rooms, sure. But in the overall, it is a great place to stay and even better to have a meal and relax.

Landing by night on this sand beach by the moonlight was an incredible start. From there on it was a dream stay : canoeing on the laguna, crossing the peninsula by food, enjoying the great meals and feeling welcome by the French-brazilian couple that is now owning the place (but maybe not for long)

This pousada is located on the best location. 800 mtrs from the beach and a few minutes from the small town , over the dune or over the beach at low tide. Nice pool and the best breakfast we have had in 3 weeks in Bahia. What we did not like are the small rooms with also a very low ceiling and no room to put your luggage. Also in relation to the rate. Yves the owner arranged all the transfers from Salvador for us and all was pefect. So overall positive but be aware rooms are small.
