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.

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.

There's plenty of people walking around taking pictures and going to the broad walk also to the Fifa Fan Fest for the World Cup, but the water is just great for any age. For now a bit on the dirty side because of so many visitors due to the games, but really nice. Sun comes up super early and water... More

Praia da Iracema is ok during the day but should be avoided by families at night, during which time it turns into Fortaleza's red light zone.

This prime beach is named for a character ‘Iracema’ in a famous novel by the writer José de Alencar (the city theatre is named for him). Many restaurants, nightclubs and hotels line this long stretch of sand. From Ingleses Bridge, a superb view can be seen right along the beach with many high rises dominating the area. Come for the...

Despite the advice from friends, took long walks along Iracema Beach and found the enthusiasm of other walkers and joggers, enthused me to walk longer and more. Never felt more safe in the multitude of people excercising from 5 AM onwards.. Great feeling.

Iracema beach is located in the central beachfront area of Fortaleza. This is trully a tourist area of the city, with so many hotels, restaurants, as well as the world-famous handicraft night fair. The beach sidewalk if perfect for a walking during sunset.
