Mucuripe Beach, Fortaleza

3.3
#9 of 19 in Beaches in Fortaleza
Mucuripe Beach is known for its fish market. Order some fresh fried fish or prawns, and enjoy the oily treat while you take in a view that has inspired many local poets. Fishing boats bobble on top of the electric blue water. All of the boats seem to be painted bright colors that try to rival the sea's azure, but they are a quinessential complement to the natural landscape. The town is as lively as the boats, and the artist in you will come to life as you gaze at the sunset across the small harbor.

  • Located at the end of avenida Beira Mar where is located the port city of Fortaleza. On this site you can buy shrimp at the price of R $35.00 a kilo and ask to prepare it on site at a price of R $10.00. It is also in this place where people witness the sunset.

  • It's beach is where is located the traditional fish Market. Therefore, it is great to walk down the Boardwalk and sit in one of the tables, choose the fish or seafood and take a nice cold beer. A tip ... go at the time of the sunset and enjoy the visual.

  • The beach is very well located, in the Beira-Mar Avenue, just too full, too crowded and unfit for bathing. The highlight is the fish market, where there are several boxes in which they are sold the most diverse fish and you buy them and take in the many kitchens that make up the market and asks if you are prepared to your taste. There are several tables the sea where you expect your fish and other accompaniments with a coconut water or a caipirinha. Worth checking out!

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.
