Praia do Futuro, Fortaleza

4.0
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. A visit to Praia do Futuro represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Fortaleza trip itinerary builder website to plot your vacation.

  • Nice beach, but you need to pay attention on possible, though not probable, thefts. Don't be fooled by the constant winds (especially between August and October) or even partly cloudy days: the sun is treacherous and really burns here. Take tons of sunscreen with you.
