Awesome place!!! Beautiful and with a lot activities for the children. My regard is for the poor menu, without many options of beverages. But is worthy to get back!

Just ignore the floating plastic and jump in the water - narrow beach at the plaza in Praia do Forte. Reefs border each side which are great to explore with sandals. Lots of tourists and beach side dining. R$15 for a 600ml Eisenbahn
