Located north of Salvador, this sleepy fishing village is popular for its picturesque church and idyllic beaches.

Spend your time exploring the pedestrianised village centre, lined with boutique restaurants, laid-back bars and artisan galleries. Alternatively, find your piece of paradise along miles of white sandy beaches, relax in the shade of swaying coconut palms and unwind in the warm seas. The stunning clarity of the water provides the ideal conditions for snorkelling among the beautiful coral reefs. The temperature is relatively constant throughout the year, although the months between April and June are wetter, with the hottest month being September. Praia do Forte is located around 50 miles north of Salvador de Bahia.
