“Windy, sandy, sunny but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The beach is clean and the sand is very nice. But there is hardly anything else. The beach bars/cafes and OK (best one we found was at the very end - the Atlantis. There we found good service and some atmosphere)
Due to its location the water is always chopy and it's very windy. Which would be fine for sports, but we didn't see one single wind- or kitesurfer out. Nor any other wateractivities.
Interesting part was, that we hardly saw any other "western" tourists, but mainly brazilians.
A day or two at the beach in a nice beach restaurant are ok. wouldn't plan more though,

“Nice Beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This beach is perfect if you want to surf or just relax. You can sit in the sand and eat lunch or swim in the surf. The food is reasonably priced and the atmosphere is perfect. Not much else to do so don't plan on doing much else. It was a little windy when I was there but that cannot be controlled, obviously. The only negative is the constant onslaught of venders that ask you to buy little trinkets, towels, jewelry, etc.

“One of the great beaches in Brazil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Love the water and the seaside restaurants with beachfront access are the perfect places to spend the day. Itatparika is one of the best and Dede is my favorite waiter there. Great food, views, and friendly staff.

“Crowded beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

It’s an urban beach. It’s windy and the waves are very strong.
It’s not the place to go if you want to see nature and relax. Not at all.
It’s the place to go if you like drinking and eating crab and any other local food inside big entertainment complexes (I’ve only seen this in Fortaleza).
Be aware you will be bothered by lots of guys trying to sell you all kinds of stuff if you seat in front of the beach and try to get there before 10am or the traffic will be annoying.

“Ok beach”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

the beaches were OK but the place is a complete mess with the amount of people - was there over the weekend, and it was a mad house. There are other places around fortaleza to hang that are better
