“The best beach in Fortaleza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This extensive stretch of sand contains various sections, each of which owned by private owners. Most have restaurants and generally good service along with tables and chairs of course. The larger ones tend be the better option for tourists due to the provision of food/drink and security along with a reasonable service.

HOWEVER, the larger (tourist targeted) sections tend to charge for the use of sun-beds and food/drink is quite pricy.

More annoyingly, the constant bombardment of sellers (from cheese to fake tattoos) can get extremely irritating; but this is present wherever you go.

Still the best place to get some sun, if you're not prepared to travel long distances to beaches such as Jericoacoara.

“Worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Get there by taxi and ask for the "barracas", some huge beach resorts with restaurants where you will be safe. Beach is very clean and the restaurants offer really nice dishes they take to your very table two steps from the sea. Crowded by nice to watch local and tourists enjoying their day at the beach.

“Not a good beach to swim.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The sea was rough and sorta dirty with algae, but the barracas are nice to stay at. Some have pools for children. Food is a bit pricey.

“The everyday beach for the town people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is the place where everybody from Fortaleza go. A very warm water and clean ocean with dozens of options of restaurants that will provide all you need at the beach. Families can spend all day there and it even wont be expensive.

“Wonderful beach but too mut huts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I just loved the beach, but I didn't like the fact that all Fortaleza beaches have too many huts and you are not allowed to stay alone by the beach.
