Dark sand and water was not too clear. Atmosphere was good. This was a crowded beach, close by restaurants added to the atmosphere. Definately not a must do in Fortaleza.

I love this beach when I'm in Fortaleza. The many "palapas" (bar-restaurant) are nice... there are some very good ones, and others not as good). The water temperature is perfect, the waves are a bit strong and are be careful with ocean currents. Careful with the beautiful tropical sun because de lovely and constant oceam brezee can pull a trick... More

I saw the place during a tourist tour. It is far away from the city; as far as I saw there is just one hotel there. It had a high wall around it. According to the tour guide, it is a pretty dangerous place, especially after sunset. Beware.

Good beach to have some leisure, but be prepared! Always some singer come and ask for tips. We went to Chico do Carangueijo and I do recommend there

We went there because the taxi driver and the hotel staff said that it was a good place. It was indeed. However, we found that the wind in this beach was too strong, too strong for us. Everything been blowing of flying away and the kids were not happy been swiped away all the time. The restaurants were very good.... More

Praia do Futuro is a must seen beach of Fortaleza. All beach facilities are avaliable of the large sandy beach. You don't have to pay too much to have the experience. Beach is safe but be careful with the waves of the ocean and better to take a taxi.

Unremarkable and a bit of an anticlimax after Beira Mar, Mierles and Iracema. The restaurants were overpriced and the area lacked ambience

Many type of barracas as options to your liking. It is pricey depending on your choice of barraca. I recommend to spend at least a day on the beach.
