Praia do Futuro, Fortaleza

(3.6/5 based on 11,000+ reviews on the web)
The most sought after beach for locals, Praia do Futuro has strong surf that makes this a popular surfing destination that serves tropical drinks from numerous beach bars. Due to its position away from the main northern coast, this urban beach boasts the cleanest waters in the area. Although its location away from the city center means that huge crowds won't bother you, this is still a touristy spot lined with seaside resorts. An endless sea of shacks in all shapes and sizes sell alcoholic drinks and finger foods along the beach. While the waters are pleasant for a small dip, the strong currents, undertows, and large waves make the waters dangerous for long swims.

  • The beach itself didn't see anything too much. Urban beach strong waves place that care must be taken because it is in a place a little dangerous. Worth the tents that have optimal structures for the day

  • Beach suitable for all families, along the beach there are a variety of bars and restaurants where you can consuming a table with chairs and umbrellas, in some bar is provided for personal safety with guard as often in this beach is kidnapped and assaulted. The sea is acceptable and not just deep, good for children. Recommend this beach to spend a day with your family or as a couple but not isolated. Close to the beach on the seafront is paid parking and shops, restaurants. To reach the beach essential car!

  • The beach is very good, overall. Tent options there are many, since some simpler ones with more structure. If you are with taxi, van type transport ... get off right in front of the tent of your choice. In return, in the same way, without venturing a lot over there. That way, your trip will be safe. We had no problem with security. In the last few days holiday home at the beach is with a dark, dirty-looking. However the explanation given is that it would be on the basis of some algae. This coloration is present generally, not just in a specific location.
