That’s the famous Meireles beach you can see on postcards, with a beautiful promenade, luxury buildings, 5 stars hotels etc. In the morning is visited especially by tourists. You’ll barely see a local bathing in this beach. What they most like to do here is just wander, I mean, walking around. And it’s a great beach to do so, to... More

It has a busy promenade, with loads of people walking and running. It sounds absolutely safe to be with your most modern running gear. It's about 3.5km in length, so you can do some serious run out there.

The beach is nothing special in itself but it is very nice the athmosphere around it. Most of the best hotels of the city are located in front of... More

Meireles is a crowded uninspiring and dirty city beach in the middle of a sea of high rises and the crowded and noisy Beira mar street-to cross you take your life in your hands. People sit around on plastic chairs and drink and talk. The water is rough and dirty. No amenities and no charm. Forget this place - not... More

The beach seams dirty, and by the end of the day, it really was. But you can sit at a beach restaurant and see the sea from a distance.

If you would like to walk just for relax or if you like to exercise its the best place in Fortaleza. You can go to take a breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is many restaurants around and beautiful and friendly people. Don't go away without drink " Agua de coco" e "tapioca". Beautiful sunset !!

Very nice and busy beach.Since Fortaleza is very work the year around, there is a good chance you will go to one of their beaches. This one is downtown. If you plan to go in the water, be aware of some rocks at the bottom.
