The Beira Mar avenue is the main sea side avenue in Fortaleza. If you are in a hotel nearby, this is a good place to walk in the evening. It is too hot in the morning and afternoon. Many places to eat and shop regional artcrafts.

We just spent a week here and did not want to leave, people are great, scenery was awesome, food was just so good and the drinks were much better than expected. There was a lot of talk about security before our trip, but the people in that whole area depend on tourism and are more than welcoming everyone. You feel... More

Stayed in Fortaleza for 7 weeks over the summer and can honestly say I spent around 80% of that time around Beira Mar. The beach is to die for, the markets that open at around sunset are amazing, and the food from the square is delicioso! The people are so lovely and the atmosphere is buzzing at any time of... More

Its very easy to be distracted in the market during the evenings. But this is a dangerous place. I was rushed from behind near Subway, held up with a gun pointing at my head, and my valuables demanded of me. When I said I didn't have anything, one of the late teen robbers grabbed my gold neck chain and yanked... More

Just the place to be if you like non stop action.Bars,restaurants,street fair,you name it you got it. Tourists in and out of Brazil flock to this well known beach front to relax and just to be in the fun. For tourists the open air fair and handicraft stands will blow you away. We always go there each time we visit... More

Beira Mar avenue is the place to go every night when staying in Fortaleza. You can find everything there.... good restaurants, coconut water, comedians show, handcraft and food fair, street artists, people go there to skate, cycling, chat, jog.. and all that with a special and unique ocean breeze. The only negative point might be security. I heard a lot... More

Beira Mar Avenue is a place to relax, a place where you can walk all day, drinking a “caipirinha” (Brazilian national drink made with lime, sugar and cachaça) or a cold coconut water or just enjoy the scenery. It is not a long ocean walk; we can easily walk the whole avenue in less than 30 minutes. There are some... More
