  • As all the beaches of Fortaleza she is very beautiful, but the lack of structure on the beach leaves something to be desired.

  • Nice place with many local fishermen. It was very interesting to see how they do the raft fishing in this region.

  • Nice beach, with beach huts. Wonderful food and spectacular scenery. Great for families and for those who love Sun and Tan. The sea is very calm-child-care afoitas. The buggy is very worthwhile and still has a pond to complete.

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.
