One of the top urban beaches in the country, Praia do Forte features white sand, turquoise sea, and lots of water sports. The long strip of coast invites a barefoot stroll, while the steady waves urge you to go surfing or kitesurfing. A slew of convenient amenities lines the beach, including shops, restaurants, bars, banks, restrooms, and showers. Venture to the early 17th-century fort nearby, which used to protect the city from foreign invaders. Note that the water is colder compared to other Brazilian beaches.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches I ever have seen. The white sand and sea colours are amazing. But I suggest coming out of the high summer season because it gets to crowded.  more »
