Forte Beach, Praia do Forte

4.5
#1 of 450 in Outdoors in State of Bahia
Forte Beach, or Praia do Forte is a beach and coastal village boasting its beautiful beaches as a relaxing alternative to the large crowds of Salvador. While this is a touristy area, there is still a small-town feel with merchants selling wood-fired tapioca pancake. While touring the area, you'll find plenty of places to rent a bicycle that allows you to become acquainted with the quaint streets and several nice trails. Surfing and paragliding are popular sports with rentals available in town. You'll find the best swimming further down the beach past Projeto Tamar. When the tide is out, you'll see tide pools full of sea life that you can even see without a mask and snorkel. A visit to Forte Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Praia do Forte trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever visited, clean and transparent waters, a multitude of beautiful colorful fishes, wonderful natural pools when tide is low! Friendly and receptive locals, visit the Tamar project, and the main street is cozy and welcoming! I can't wait to get back!

  • Praia do Forte is an excellent option for those looking for a quiet place for a family stroll. It has a villa with excellent structure in restaurants and inns. In addition, there is a supermarket right at the entrance of the access highway. Recommend!
