The beach is a bit far from Fortaleza's center, but you have public buses that take you there. The beach is really nice, clean and has a lot of beach bars. We went to Saturno, it was really quiet in march. The sea has big waves and it's choppy.

If you like to go to a beach where you can take a seat in a table, have a waiter to serve you, listen loud music, in the middle of a lot of people, this is your place. If you want a peaceful beach to just enjoy the sea, sun and nature, run away immediately !

This is the best beach located in the city. The beach is clean and there are several restaurants with infrastructure for you to spend the day at the beach.

It beautiful and you will find an infrastructure that you will not find in other place. Big restaurants, sometimes with swimming pool, music and delicious food. Try the crab... It's amaizing delicious. And have a coconut juice. You can also have a relaxing massage by the sound of the ocean. Just be careful when go for swimming. The sea and... More

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.
