Nice Area; Vendors, Dining, and the Beach!

Fortaleza has a long coastline of beaches. Each little district has its own name, and Iracema is full of unique opportunities. Vendors are out selling artisan goods and local... read more

The beach is dirty, no place to lie down, crowded, noisy and did I say dirty and unsafe after dusk. People hang out in so called Barracas (sounds like barracks -not my kind of paradise) to drinks, play loud music and drink more. No class! Not the studf dreams are made off. If you want a city beach in Brazil,... More

This beach has nice sand and many people but the sewer comes out nearby. Go to Futuro for swimming / beach lounging, but this beach is great for a nice morning jog or evening walk about... but beware the scoundrels in the evening

It is a central beach with a nice sidewalk. To swimm, prefer praia do futuro or the Beach Park beach, that are far from downtown and from its port, but much better for this purpose. Iracema is a famous place, where you can buy local handicraft. Near Iracema there are nice hotels and good restaurants.

Whatever they might say, it is now quite one of the cleanest beach after all they did to make it better these last years! Especially after the rain, this beach will be cleaner than praia do futuro which gets all the pollutoipn from the river.

This beach could be a wonderful place to walk and have some fun time, but it is too dirty. There is trash everywhere and don't bother entering in the water: it is polluted. It requires major work from the authorities to first improve the infrastructure on the place (side walks, equipment, trash can, etc), second it requires a huge campaign... More

Fortaleza has a long coastline of beaches. Each little district has its own name, and Iracema is full of unique opportunities. Vendors are out selling artisan goods and local delicacies. While the beach is nicer up the coast, this area is active. Soccer being played, rollerblading & skateboarding, tight rope walkers among the palms, and some good people watching. Not... More
