Once at Praia da Fortaleza the boulders are located on the rocky peninsula which is easily visible from the beach. To get there, walk to the southern end of the beach and look for a trail which heads into the woods. Take this trail and follow it for 5-10 minutes. When the trail forks, take the left fork until you come out onto the point with the boulders. (Note that at the beginning of the trail there are a number of small side trails which take you down to the ocean, don't follow these.)
