Aldeia de pescadores, Canoa Quebrada

With its distinctive orange cliffs and fine, white beach, the small, rustic fishing village of Aldeia de pescadores ('Broken Canoe'), known as the pearl of the east coast of Ceará, is fast becoming an international tourist destination. Already there are a whole host of tourist activities to try, including dune buggies, horse riding, sailing in a 'jangada' boat, mountain biking, sandboarding, kitesurfing, and windsurfing. Alternatively you can simply relax on the idyllic beach, or dine at one of the many restaurants on the village's main street: 'Broadway.'

Where to stay in Canoa Quebrada

A small settlement quickly developing into a major tourist destination, Canoa Quebrada features numerous inns offering affordable rooms to tourists visiting on a budget. The least expensive of these small, often family-run establishments provide very few amenities and do not offer advance reservation options. If you don't wish to shop around upon your arrival, choose one of the area's mid-range guesthouses, which frequently offer access to private parking areas, rooftop terraces, and swimming pools.
