I wasn't informed that the beach was a surfers beach with gigantic waves! There is no way a family with young children can stay near the sea! Besides, it is filthy!

We took a 20 mins taxi from Fortaleza and went to the Atlantis Complex which offered a wide range of food,drink, secure storage boxes, swimming pool, showers and toilets. The beach is excellent for swimming and walking by the sea. Well worth the visit.

I Got robbed as soon as arrived at the beach. By 3 guys with knife. I searched my iphone with "find my iphone" and located it. Then I went to a police station, but incredibly they told nothing that could be done. Nice guys! Nice Region of Brazil! Stay off!!!!

That's a very good place to go with some friends, with reasonable price of meals and beverages. The best time to be there is sunset on sunrise, but if you enjoy the hot weather.. Until 9 am to 4 pm it's very good!

Beautiful beaches and lots of different barracas (beach clubs) to choose from. Some for families; some for the in crowd. Ask around before going as there are distances between the restaurants (most have a long beach expanse) and some are boarded up and are out of business. Except for the nice barracas, the overall area has been a developers' nightmare,... More

Beach was nice enough, quite noisy though so not the place to go for peace and quiet. No sign of any Dec chairs. You could pay for a spray tan on the beach though which we found hilarious!

This is a great beach! There are a ton of restaurants that are literally on the beach. Make sure you find one of the nicer ones. Not a ton of English is spoken here, so plan accordingly.

Bad beach, crowded with local drunks, rough waves and dangerous under currents. AVOID!!! Hard to park, bad food, really dangerous water. NO CHILDREN EVER should be taken here.
