I understand there is a way to get down to Batata Beach WITHOUT having to negotiate millions of stairs---by entering via the 'flatter' 'main' entrance next to the Forte. Is this true? If it is --how do I find this entrance ???
Thanx in advance for your help !
It's easy! Just follow the road down the hill towards town and you will come to the Forte on your right when you get to the bottom. Turn sharp right and there's the beach about 50 yards in front of you just across the end of the breakwater. The area is flat.
You cannot avoid walking back up the hill afterwards unless you catch the bus.
