Best time of the year to go to Praia do Forte

The summer period is also a good time to assist to the nesting and releasing of baby sea turtles in local beaches (Projeto Tamar).
For those looking for local events, the period between July and October is also a good time to assist to the spectacle of the humpback whales (there are local boat rides monitored by biologists).
Tempero no Forte is another great event; it happens in November and involves local cuisine in the beach restaurants and structures.
Rain and humidity are higher from April to June. In this sense, that’s the worst period to visit Praia do Forte.
