Gorgeous sunset!

This is a place to go in a slow mode, walking on the Meireles Beach all the way to the end. Grab a coconut water on your way and enjoy the sun setting on the sea. Cool!

This pier is rundown and and requires money spending on it. Would only recommend visiting to take photos of the beach area. Otherwise there is nothing there.

There is not much to see on this bridge (in fact a pier). There were no shops (only the empty kiosks), the whole place seems to be quite run down. Quite disappointing, considering that it's supposed to be a touristic highlight.

You you see a couple of "bridges" in Fortaleza that are actually piers. Some were build to be actually bridges that were never finished. Aside from that historical information, the bridge is a place for a nice walk and to take pictures of the sunset.

Excelent for taking a picture and make you friends envy your travel! =) You can also walk around, take a sun bath, drink sth in a bar in front of that. The best place of the city.

It is one of the turistic points of Fortaleza. There are some bars and stores near the bridge. Good place to see the sunset.

The "Ponte Metalica" has fallen on hard times and was closed for a while. The small souvenir shop and cafes that used to be there are gone. The end of the pier is fenced off, but people regularly jump onto the pilings of what used to be the end of the pier. It's a popular place from which to watch... More

'Metal' Bridge or as the name translates to - English Bridge is situated perfectly over one of many beautiful coastal and beach areas in this State of Brazil.The structure itself dates back to the 1900's when it was used primarily for passenger vessels. Now when tourists like us leave for the day it is a meeting place for the young... More

Nice place! Just relax, see the view of the city and sea! And feel the wind! Soooo beautiful! And then you can walk around in Praia de Iracema by bike, roller blade (wich you can rent there), or even on foot...
