It's an hour or so drive from Fortaleza but so worth it. Amazing dunes, glorious beach. The tone leading into the beach area is also very special. Not touristy at all. A real Brazilian village.

Morro Branco is one of the most enchanting beaches in Brazil's Northeast. The colorful sandstone cliffs bordering the beach are magnificent. Don't expect much in the way of tourist accommodations here, just a few beach barracas and small pousados for overnight accommodations. However, there are some fine beach houses, many with pools, for rent at very reasonable prices. The beach... More

Ok, well not just another beach because there are those colored sands. But dont think you're going to see huge mountains of sand. They are not that tall and the tour doesnt take that long. Loads of natives selling water yelling u won't find more water for another 30 min, but after 10 min theres a guy selling ice cream... More

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?)
