Morro Branco, Fortaleza
(4.6/5 based on 7,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The cliffs of Morro Branco are amazing! It's worth taking a little jump in Canoa Quebrada after because it is very close.

  • The site yields good pictures and has beautiful scenery. The village, however, seems somewhat decadent and not well frequented. The local guides make a right on terrorism assaults (from the impression that is to ensure that they will have their services contracted) but the maze of coloured sands worth enough to visit. A walk along the shore to the praia das fontes also applies because there is a more secluded well nice. The local geography is quite interesting and quirky. I wouldn't spend more than a day but is worth a tour "hits" If you are staying around.

  • Several tents are with the structures damaged by the Tides. The tent indicated by the CVC does not offer quality food.
