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. Close to all amneties, nice beach in the center of the new Fortaleza, with its... More

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

Apparently it's one of two nice beaches in Fortaleza, and that may be true but it's not a beach you ever want to visit. The windy was insane, rubbish everywhere, smelt of urine, paths around the beach were covered in something very gross. I've been to lots of basic/third world beaches and this one (and Futuro) would be at the... More

Because it is very famous. It is also very crowded. But worth to go and spend the day or a few hours. Take some time to go at night and visit the local handmade local production craft fair. I have wallets and bags that seems to last forever.

Like the warm water and the nice and helpfull beach food&beverage. Lot's of waste in the beach and in the walkway near it. Very crowded at weekends.

This is a good clean beach and it feels a lot safer than the rest of Fortaleza. You can walk a few kilometers along it and we kids playing football etc and the sunset almost goes into the ocean so you can take nice photos.
