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.

Don't try to swim on this beach, it's not clean. but the view is amazing. You can take great pictures. It's also a good place to walk, to see the sunrise, get an ice cream, buy some traditional gifts you have a great time on the begin of night.

Meireles beach is where most of Fortaleza's big hotels, restaurants and the famous handicrafts and souvenirs 'feirinha' are located. I would not swim there as it just looks (and smells!) unsafe. Fortaleza is one of those places where great riches and extreme poverty live side by side and this beach is certainly a strong example of that. Beware of the... More

While not as wild as Futuro, this beach nevertheless provides a place to spend an afternoon, whether walking the shore, swimming in much gentler swells, admiring the jangadas sailing out on the bay, or relaxing with your toes sunk in the sand with a drink in one of the many beachfront restaurants.
