Beach Hotel Praia do Forte, the only place for you to live virtually next to the sea, like in your own weekend house on the beach.

Linda Praia frente ao Hotel

"Piscinas naturais", or natural tidal pools

Right in front of the hotel are several natural swimming pools, known in Portguese as “piscinas naturais”. They are beautiful to watch, because they constantly change their appearance. They form an ever changing seascape to watch and to admire: sometimes with glittering of the morning sun reflected by in the calm lagoon in front of the Beach Hotel Praia do Forte; sometimes – during high tide - full of energy with the waves rolling almost up to the fence of our hotel. The pools are beautiful for snorkelling. And at high tide, they are beautiful to swim in, with exciting rolling waves, but no breaking waves except at the beach. All the while, the reef makes sure that you never need to worry that a tidal current might be pulling you towards the open sea.

If you are able to stay with us in our Beach Hotel Praia do Forte - Porto da Lua during or a few days after a full moon, you will understand why the Hotel is called “Porto da Lua” - which translates as Harbour of the Moon, or simply Moon harbour. It is just breath-taking to watch the full moon rising out of the ocean, over the reef, just in front of our beach Hotel Praia do Forte. During moonrise, the outer reef forms a lagoon, leaving the illusion being filled with silver. And opposite, on your right, the charming lighthouse completes the picture of a virtual harbour of the moon.
