Beach Nature / Park
Access to Morro Branco is along a gravel road just before descending the hill to reach the beach filled with reddish brown and multi-colored sands that contrast with the azure colored sea. You can rent and take lessons from locals offering buggy rides, four-wheelers, microlight flights, and jangada (boat) rides to local attractions. You can wade across the Rio Chorro at low tide at the far side of the beach, or take a small personal-powered ferry to other beach bars, called barracas. This beach is a favorite among locals as well as kitesurfers. Locals show you their handicrafts and arts in hopes that you will by their works, but many of their creations are highly creative in nature. Huge dunes and jagged cliffs dot the shoreline with magnificent and picturesque landscapes that are child-friendly due to the lack of large tourist crowds. Morro Branco is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Fortaleza Edition.

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.

  • That beach is amazing with the dunes and its different colours of sand. You should get a ride on a buggy and explore the beach.  more »
  • A beach surrounded by the cliffs makes this place quite interesting, but there is a lack of structure regarding restaurants and toilets to receive the tourists. The local guides are super pushy and in...  more »
