This is one of the least visited beaches on the island of Santa Catarina, Brazil. For this reason, it is a great place to go. All the other beaches (all 41 of them) are also great, especially those in the East and South, but this one is special. There are a couple of bars where you can buy fish and drink caipirinhas (or beer), but the main attraction is the beach and the water, which is generally calm (not a surfing beach) and warm. Fishing boats come in occasionally and you can buy fish from them, but it´s not a big fishing beach like Pantano do Sul (another of our favorites). There is also a fort, of course (hence the name, "Praia do Forte"), but it´s not very interesting. It´s best to go out of season to avoid the large numbers of non-islanders that descend on Florianopolis every January and February.
