Relax at one of the many barracas that line this gorgeous beach. Stay for lunch or have a cold beer or caipirinha in the afternoon after a long hike on the beach. Choose your food carefully. Some barracas offer better food than others. None of it seems very fresh but then it's just beach fare after all. The beach on... More

What an excursion this was. Yes it was set up for tourists to make certain stops for pictures and to buy things, etc but with scenery and surroundings like this it didn't matter! The dune buggy ride was so much fun as we held on precariously to the back of the buggy with the elderly couple who were in our... More

Endless beach with wonderful sand. Plenty of sun. Good size waves. Everything you could want from the beach. Get out to see the sunrise and catch the local fisherman at work.

This beach is lovely! And the barracas/restaurants are fun, too. We loved watching fishermen rolling their jangadas in or out of the sea, at the beginning and end of each day. Waves are constant, benign, and entertaining!

There are many restaurants on the beach, in front of the main sightseeing of the city, the “Falésias”. If you are looking for a place to enjoy this landscape, you may be disappointed with the tourist “facilities”, because it is killing the place and landscape in my point of view.

Good points: this is maybe one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been. It has a lot of things to do, see, visit: falésias, waterfall, beautiful dunes, sand sculptures. Local are an a part attraction, very pleasant people, you can find a guide from locals. Look for Cascão next to Broadway, more than sympathetic, a really good person,... More

Much better than Fortaleza, the city it`s calm and great to relax. At night there is a small ville called Broadway where there are a lot of restaurantes, and bars.
