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`s the less dangerous place in fortaleza, id say. but you better avoid during the week, too late at night, it can be desert. other than that, its nice to relax and see a lot of people, i recommend it during the weekends. not a lot of people during the morning, so you can run in peace, lol.

The Beira Mar avenue is the main sea side avenue in Fortaleza. If you are in a hotel nearby, this is a good place to walk in the evening. It is too hot in the morning and afternoon. Many places to eat and shop regional artcrafts.

We just spent a week here and did not want to leave, people are great, scenery was awesome, food was just so good and the drinks were much better than expected. There was a lot of talk about security before our trip, but the people in that whole area depend on tourism and are more than welcoming everyone. You feel... More

Stayed in Fortaleza for 7 weeks over the summer and can honestly say I spent around 80% of that time around Beira Mar. The beach is to die for, the markets that open at around sunset are amazing, and the food from the square is delicioso! The people are so lovely and the atmosphere is buzzing at any time of... More

Its very easy to be distracted in the market during the evenings. But this is a dangerous place. I was rushed from behind near Subway, held up with a gun pointing at my head, and my valuables demanded of me. When I said I didn't have anything, one of the late teen robbers grabbed my gold neck chain and yanked... More

Just the place to be if you like non stop action.Bars,restaurants,street fair,you name it you got it. Tourists in and out of Brazil flock to this well known beach front to relax and just to be in the fun. For tourists the open air fair and handicraft stands will blow you away. We always go there each time we visit... More

Beira Mar avenue is the place to go every night when staying in Fortaleza. You can find everything there.... good restaurants, coconut water, comedians show, handcraft and food fair, street artists, people go there to skate, cycling, chat, jog.. and all that with a special and unique ocean breeze. The only negative point might be security. I heard a lot... More
