The place and structure is quite simple but less crowded than the city and less expensive than a touristic place like Beach Park. Most of the beach restaurants have now free wifi as well and you can also free park in front of the beach places. For me, is a good option for spending a day at the beach outside... More

This used to be a good beach but now is like an abandoned place and quite dangerous. Be careful if you take the way from Beach Park here there are a lof of robberies in that road.

The beach is meant for the locals. Many people from Fortaleza have beach houses there. There is not a good structure for turists.

This is a perfect beach for all those that want to get away from crowded city beaches. Prainha greets you with its calmness, white sand and warm and clean sea (to the opposite of Praia do Futuro). Since it is much less crowded as Praia do Futuro or Beach park, people even nicer and prices at the beach a bit... More

The place was closed, but the whiteness an the simplicity from the outside, just on the corner of the street, makes a nice shot. Look at it when you are down the hill with a black sky behind.
