Iracema Beach, Fortaleza

3.4
#5 of 25 in Outdoors in Fortaleza
The bohemian beach of Iracema Beach attracts a lively, late night crowd of party-goers including locals and travels. A large concentration of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs line the boardwalk and beaches. Many of the festivities go on all night long and even into the daylight hours. Due to pollution, this is not necessarily a swimming beach, but there are gorgeous views of the sea-green ocean --especially at disk. You'll see several cultural statues like the Statue in Praia de Iracema holding a large bow as if ready for a battle--called "Iracema, Guardiã (Iracema, the Guardian). Not only does the area have a large proportion of bars and nightclubs, art galleries and small boutique souvenir shops dot the boardwalk.

    To spend the day there are discos with a consumption can access tables chairs and bath shower, there are many street vendors, they don't have any problem by eating other foods and just for lunch or dinner, the beach is removed during the day to the fall afternoon grows, aren't big waves, my children of 6 and 7 years were perfectly playing alone Sea, sinking not hit so it does not return it dangerous, if the beach is very dirty

    As beach to swim not recommend. Is polluted! But for a walk at sunset on the Boardwalk is worth. The handicraft market starts at 17:00 and goes to the 23:00. There are many works of art on the Iracema on the edge. At night it's nice not to walk alone.

Where to stay in Fortaleza

If you want to focus on the historical attractions in Fortaleza, stay in the city center or a nearby neighborhood for easy access. Far more popular, however, is the coastal neighborhood of Praia de Iracema, where you can immerse yourself in the city's beach, restaurant, and nightlife scene. Any number of hotels line the neighborhood's expansive beachfront. For something a bit quieter, but still a stone's throw from the beach, look east to the coastal neighborhoods of De Lourdes and Praia do Futuro II. Thanks to the growing popularity of Fortaleza tourism, you can find a range of budget hostels throughout the city.
