It is very different and typical of Ceara. You will walk the town and after that do a buggy tour. I liked that is not so turistic place, very raw but nice to be there, good food

Do not miss it. It is so beautiful. Well taken care. Canyons with different colors of sands. We took a tour but should have rented a car. Roads are in excellent conditions.

Get around by buggy and dont forget the sunblock. Do not follow all the recommendation from your guide. For example: They will guide you to a specific restaurant, but this is the one they have comission, not the best for you. Walk around and find a better and less crowded place by yourself.

I travelled as a backpacker to Morro branco in 1990. I know very belated review! It was then very basic no real hotels or home comforts! But the place was amazing. I remember walking along the beach for miles. I just wondered if anyone else spotted a gated house just off main beach that was modelled on Dover castle and... More

This beach goes on for just miles. The Atlantic on one side and high dunes on the other, we just walked and walked. However it is flat and wide so beware of the constant stream of buggies flying past.

The highlights: * beautiful beach, huge dunes, beautiful colored sand The lowlights: * very touristic, you can't even get a picture of just yourself without others on it * very very commercial, bus loads of people go there, there's something for sale every 100 meters it seems (or was it every 10?)

Small town, beautiful beach, interesting falajas. Six kilometers of undeveloped beach if you take the gravel road to the left just before descending the hill to Morro Branco. Buggy rides to local attractions, quad rentals, microlight flights, rides on jangadas. Reasonably priced pousadas (small family run hotels). At the far end of the beach you can wade across the Rio...

Very nice tour through colored sands, magnificent landscapes, real restaurants at the beach, organized and clean. For a one day trip coming from Fortaleza with my 6 years old son. Definitely worth it.

Morro branco beach is located at Beberibe town, which is about 1:30 hour away from Fortaleza by car, driving on the excellent double-lane CE-040 highway. It is really worth visiting it, since it is a calm beach, with astonishing views. It is perfect for families willing a nice day-trip from Fortaleza.
