Mucuripe Beach, Fortaleza

3.3
#9 of 19 in Beaches in Fortaleza
Beach Nature / Park
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. Arrange to visit Mucuripe Beach and other attractions in Fortaleza using our Fortaleza vacation trip planner.

  • The views are very nice. It is an urban beach of a large city like Fortaleza, is quite well. The boats of fishermen give it a tone and picturesque at sunset, a very special climate.

  • Visit the fortress you can visit the Mucuripe Beach and be sure to know the fish market and you can buy a fresh fish and prepare in time looking the sunset. avoid arrive after 18 hours to get a seat will require patience.

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.
