Very nice beach

Had the chance to make a little walk on sunset and could enjoy the big beach with a nice view on both side. Many activities in the evening.

The promenade starts with sunrise with lots of joggers. The barracas are well organized and the tourist police keeps an eye on things. Check out the fish market at the extreme Eastern end, near the port. The evening fair and artesan market is worth several visits.

This beach is excellent. Smooth sand, shallow water, clean, very little wave action. Easy to get to. Well equipped. Just go here and forget the others. Fortaleza is 3rd rate city anyway.

The Beach is beautifull and you can have a bathroons there. The water is clear and worm. It's just a little lonely place (since I want there In the low sensor).

It is a shame that such a nice beach cannot be used for bathing because it is polluted. It is a shame that all governments, as in Brazil as a whole, have not been concerned by its population needs and health, paying so littel attention to environment, while building costly venues such as viaducts, bridges and other useless facilities nearby....

Without a doubt, that’s my favorite beach ever. And the most amusing. In the morning is very quiet, just a few people and there’s no shade, good for those who like to literally get sunburned. But you won’t find barracas de praia (a kind of beach-side bars), beach chairs, kiosks, nothing like that. Some say it’s polluted, I don’t doubt... More

The beach is often used by tourists and locals , the beach is located beside the main street beira mar, where one can sunbathe and dine in one of the many resturant ( Baracas ) located next to the beach

The beach is dirty, no place to lie down, crowded, noisy and did I say dirty and unsafe after dusk. People hang out in so called Barracas (sounds like barracks -not my kind of paradise) to drinks, play loud music and drink more. No class! Not the studf dreams are made off. If you want a city beach in Brazil,... More
