Go there early and you will be able to get a nice place in the sand, gets crowded after 11am. You do not need to go to get anything, you wil have restaurant service at the table with good options. Also there is a lot of people selling local souvenirs Enjoy and get tanned with protection

We were staying in a hotel at Praia do Futuro and were shocked by the lack of security. The hotel structure (restaurant and bar) on the beach is full of security guards and the are always advising the customers not to leave the area because it's dangerous. So disappointing... we couldn't even go for a walk on the beach and... More

Best Beach in Fortaleza, but still not very nice. Only serviced tents and if don't get there early you be seated long away from the sea. If you have time travel a little more to seek better beaches.

It is a huge beach, where you can walk and see all kinds of people, from all backgrounds. Very democratic. They have all this restaurants by the beach, that serve you all kinds of drinks and food, including regional stuff. It can get a bit crowded.

Although a nice beach, there have been lots of thieves, so it's a place to go if you are part of a large group of people.

Place where there are lots of barracas(food and beverage stands)selling all day and late into the nights. Please note that one must be careful on this strip as petty thieves circle the area.With little caution your time here will well be worth it. On the weekends the activities of sunbathing,selling,drinking and eating can be testing. Try the peixe frito,fried fish... More
