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.

    The beaches of Fortaleza are all improper for sea-bathing and even to sunbathe: many sellers and beggars. Is suitable for a walk on the Boardwalk at night ... but also with much harassment by beggars and hawkers. Has good lighting and security. A few tourist attractions. Handicraft market very weak and repetitive products and quality. Restaurants with low cost-benefit ratio.

    Beach where you can buy fresh fish, shrimp, directly from the fisherman, at the fish market. There, FRY what you buy. The place is simple, but pretty good. A beautiful setting to enjoy while they we bought. I thought I was going to have a strong and unpleasant smell of fish. Eat well, for a fair price.

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.
