“A place to take money from tourists”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

The beach here is truly wonderful. There are many restaurants and shops. However this village is really expensive to go. Anything there is paid and the value is not fair. Besides that the village doesn´t show real life of inner people. It is only a touristic place.

“Praia do Forte”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Nice beach to visit. Calm waves, warm water. Gets quite busy, so don't expect peace and quiet. Lots of restaurants and bars nearby as well as showers when you come off the sand. Close to Projeto Tamar as well as the Church of San Francisco.

“Snorkling”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

The city Praia Do Forte is a very lovely city and very cosy. The turtle project is most nice to visit during December to March months as the turtle eggs might hatch. Afterwards we snorkeled around a close rif seeing a lot of colored fish.

“Turtle project good for children, but surrounding beach and town are charming”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

The turtle project is a little commercialised and light weight, but it's a nice enough place for kids. The town with its boutique shops and restaurants are quite charming and relaxed. The best part is the beach which is quite idyllic with its palm trees. The fishing port/village has character and is very colourful. Worth a trip if you are in the area.

“Nice place to visit near salvador”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Nice place to visit just 40kms from salvador with good hotels and restaurants . The streets are lined up with lots of shop selling local handicrafts n food stuff. Then they have over there the Tamar project. Which is into conservation of the life and habitat of the Turtles. They have a exhibition cum museum of the work they Carry out, interesting n worth visiting. The next at praia do forte is not good but there is beautiful beach just 10 mins from there . Very clean beach,almost isolated clean n transparent water . During low tide, water recedes to form natural pools excellent place to spend the day, far from the congested, beaches of salvador
