Morro Branco, Fortaleza

4.6
#1 of 188 in Outdoors in State of Ceara
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.

  • Some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever met. Location super nice and super hospitable people. Buggy ride down the beach to visit caves and springs of water, as well as an amazing lagoon for a bath after the adventure. The visit at Vilamoura with colored sand is a show of beauty on the side and then another good part by visiting the restaurants. Great! In the end, prove to the moqueca and Ceará, excellent will that was sampled in restaurant/SJ (not sure) but it is a tent in the middle of the five soon that descends upon arrival of the beach in Morro Branco. Show!!!
