    The sea is very quiet compared to other beaches, but the water doesn't get to be as transparent as expected. The sand is thin but gets a little impaired with the garbage and free transit of nestlings. Has good tents and good family environments.

    Great structures of huts on the beach, with great restaurants, buggy rides and less tiring, beautiful ponds and a wonderful sea to admire, I recommend.

    Not the same old beach. Unfortunately I don't feel safe, I think dirty Beach, the tours are expensive and dangerous. I believe that today the beach just for the practice of kitesurfing because really the winds are many strong it.

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.
