We visited Praia do Forte for a few days last September and the beaches are so beautiful. You can do snorkeling or just rent a sunbed for a few bucks. Coconuts are available to drink on call, or capirinha if you prefer. And great snacking food everywhere. We had an amazingly relaxing time in that place. Paradise it is.

Awesome place! Great place to walk the streets and get to know the local crafts! Also with a nice beach and the tamar project! I recommend buying the cachaça factory in that region.

This is your typical tropical Atlantic beach, fringed with palm trees, with several tones of blue and green in the sea and very interesting natural pools at low tied

About 2.5 hours North of Salvador, Bahia, the small town right by the coast gives access to beautiful, tropical, palmtree -lined beaches. Nice resorts!

The site has a visitor entrance with several displays and historical background. The fort itself is well preserved and you can walk through what remains of the structure.

Beautiful beaches, nice place to walk around, the restaurants are nice, but very expensive and the food is not always good. Lots of music and fun.
