Praia do Forte Resort
***** Resort, outside the village… Our recommended spot for a real tropical beach experience. Designed in a Polynesian style of low, thatched-roof buildings set on an excellent palm-fringed beach, this resort offers many water sports and leisure activities with a very laid back Bahian flavor. Enjoy great food, wonderful music and delightful poolside atmosphere. Rain forest treks and strolls through the adjacent fishing village complete the scene. This ecologically-oriented spot won “Best Brazilian Resort” two years running.
Pousada Sobrado da Vila
*** Pousada, inside the village…Less expensive and more laid back, this considerably simpler — yet very charming — pousada is located in the middle of the fishing village of Praia do Forte, close to the beach and to the fascinating Projeto Tamar. It offers rustic style accommodations, some with living space, balcony and bedroom. A funky alternative where you can walk right down to the beach and mingle with the local people on the shore or visit an open air cafe for a fresh shrimp stew and cold beer.
