Meireles is a crowded uninspiring and dirty city beach in the middle of a sea of high rises and the crowded and noisy Beira mar street-to cross you take your life in your hands. People sit around on plastic chairs and drink and talk. The water is rough and dirty. No amenities and no charm. Forget this place - not... More

The beach seams dirty, and by the end of the day, it really was. But you can sit at a beach restaurant and see the sea from a distance.

If you would like to walk just for relax or if you like to exercise its the best place in Fortaleza. You can go to take a breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is many restaurants around and beautiful and friendly people. Don't go away without drink " Agua de coco" e "tapioca". Beautiful sunset !!

Very nice and busy beach.Since Fortaleza is very work the year around, there is a good chance you will go to one of their beaches. This one is downtown. If you plan to go in the water, be aware of some rocks at the bottom.

Start early and join the regular joggers on the road. Very few walk on the beach. Tide can be high. Stay safe as some areas seem shady. The market is great in the evening. Buy Brazilian lace and a hammock

I did not quite get on the beach or enjoyed the beach. However, I did see the beach and did some shopping by the beach in the night market. The skyline is beautiful and the water looks pristine blue. It is a lovely beach. Many people come here as well as early morning people are seen jogging or running along... More

I don't recommend to enjoy the beach. We were mugged and one of the robbers tried to hurt us. (They r a kind of pickpockets) Being inside the beach bars which are less exposed to the beach is ok.

This beach is used mostly for walks at the beach. The proximity with the city makes it polluted and not good for a swim. However it is a great place to walk during the nights in Fortaleza.
