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.

Great beach and excellent sea food. The beer is fantastic and served cold at the main refreshment stands. To be safe stay close to the main restaurant stands. People have been known to be robbed right on the beach. Order the local crab or grilled fish. The coconuts are fresh and chilled to the right temperature. Food is cheap by... More

We stayed at a hotel along Beira Mar. It is very safe, with walking path along the beach front. We took a bus (no. 49) from outside the hotel, bus fare R2.20 per person to the Croco beach on Praia do Futuro. Just note that the Crcobeach is a block away from the bus route. There is no way of...

Praia do Futuro is beach located a few kilometers outside central Fortaleza, Brazil. It is prettier and much cleaner than the other city beaches which are polluted to the point of being unusable. Futuro has dozens of large barracas, or beach restaurants that generally are open only during the day and on Thursday nights. My favorite one is Coco Beach,... More

This is your 70-80s Picture Wallpaper come true. Coconut Trees all the way down to the beach. And obviously the grow naturally here and not being planted like at the Cote Azure in France or so. Remember that Fortaleza is located almost directly under the equator which means seasons are almost missing here, therefore when you make yourself comfortable under... More

If you stay in your "resort" area (restaurant / bar) and just enjoy the food and scenery, you should be okay, but if you go for a walk on the beach after lunch like we did -- even though a busy beach with lots of activity and broad daylight -- you might get robbed. My husband and I were having... More
