Compared to the Praia de Iracema development along the Praia de Futuro is much more low rise and the whole area has a more natural feel. All along the clean sandy beach are bathing establishments with restaurants and bars. Swimming, sub bathing and watersports most popular activities. Hawkers are persistent...............

We love this beach. The staff is serviceminded, and they try their utmost to deliver and they do. If you want a fresh coconut give it some minutes and it is right there in your lounge chair. The music is in the louder side, but we all have our preferences. Spend the whole day, relax and enjoy. I love Fortaleza!

On this overcast day, we went for an energizing morning walk along the beach. The water was a little rough. The beach sands were fairly clean and the water clear.

8 kms of beautiful beach, lined with "barracas", one after another. These started out as beach bar shacks, that have grown into beautiful restaurants, entertainment centers with childrens playgrounds, water slides, and live music in virtually each one on the weekend. Have very reasonably priced seafood, ICE cold beer and caipirinhas served to you at the edge of the water. This where all the locals go to enjoy their Sunday at the beach.
Thursday night is also known for carangejo. Several of the barraca have all you can eat specials for these crabs cooked in coconut milk.
Ask for at your hotel for the current hot spot.

We were here with local friends and that's always the best option. Everyone hides under the sunshades because the Fortaleza sun knows no mercy. Around us, several older gays with their local toyboys, some lesbians and local guys showing off. With all the itinerant traders, absolutely no shortage of snacks. But the main dish we ordered in the barraca. Good stuff. A guard keeps an eye on everything, backwards to the sea.
But even locals have to watch out as in full day light, 4 boys approached one of our friends who went for a swim and robbed his gold necklace.

It's an OK beach, but dirty (overall Fortaleza is NOT clean at all, one cas spot trash in all beaches); too many people walking back and forth trying to sell you all kinds of stuff. Being a foreigner makes it worse, they keep asking you if you're Italian (I wonder why). Had lunch at Chico do Caranguejo, great blue crab at 2 dollars a piece. A few areas don't small good, actually the place across the street from this restaurant stinks - seems to be where the restaurant dumps the unasable crab.

The beach of the feature is a typically Brazilian beach, There you can buy coconut water at a cheap price, And to eat a good Brazilian shrimp fished by artisanal fishermen

We stayed in a hotel in front of Iracema beach but we wanted to spend half a day at a nice beach that offered chairs and umbrellas and served good food and drinks. The locals told us Iracema Beach is not very good for swimming and we would be better off taking a cab to Praia do Futuro where we would be able to enjoy the beach and order food and drinks. We took a cab there 3 days in a roll. The ocean there is a little rough, but the water looked much cleaner than Iracema Beach. After walking on the beach for a few minutes we found an unoccupied table with an umbrella and chairs in front of one of the “barracas”. We asked for a menu and ordered a couple of rounds of caipiroscas and a few appetizers. Everything was brought directly to our table and tasted great. Here is an important tip: All the barracas accept credit cards and it’s super safe for paying the bill since they bring the little credit machines and swipe the card right in front of you. The first time we went there we paid our bill by cash and I believe they overcharged us a little bit. We let it go because we ha a wonderful time and wanted to avoid a confrontation. Another important tip: When you arrive at Praia do Futuro take a walk on the beach because you want to find a vacant table and chairs on the sand near the ocean, and not inside the barracas where there is always a ton of people and a lot of noise from the live music they play all day. If you walk on the side walk you won’t be able to see available tables on the beach.
I see quite a few bad reviews complaining about vendors on the beach selling home made items and food products. While vendors keep walking around offering their stuff on the beach they are not an inconvenience. Just say: “não, obrigado” (no thanks) and they move on.
If you want a safe and comfortable beach experience in Fortaleza I do recommend going to Praia do Futuro. There are several of other beautiful beaches outside of town however, be aware they might not be safe because they are located in isolated areas with little or no police presence. Even the locals avoid these beaches because they lack comfort and safety.

If you stay in your "resort" area (restaurant / bar) and just enjoy the food and scenery, you should be okay, but if you go for a walk on the beach after lunch like we did -- even though a busy beach with lots of activity and broad daylight -- you might get robbed. My husband and I were having a lovely day when we were aggressively grabbed, yelled at and shaken by two thiefs. We had to give them our bag. Thankfully, some kind local men playing soccer nearby chased the thieves, who dropped everything but our new camera. The people helped us get to the police and tell them the story and even caught one of the thiefs! Big thanks to the people who helped us -- we are grateful. But we don't recommend visiting this beach.

If you are looking for a place in the beach where you can stay in a place with good restaurants, at teh same time you can sit in the shadow near the ocean or in the sun. Good services, food and drinks. Try places like Terra do Sol, Itaparica and Croco Beach.
