“The second best beach of Ceará”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

After Jericoacoara, this is the best beach of this nice and lively state of Ceará. You don't need to go on a tour, just take the public bus 366 at 09:00 am in front of the Ideal Club, cost R$ 4,90 or 2,5 US$. to return back to Fortaleza you can take at 2:30pm and 5:00 pm .

“Nice beach not too far from Fortaleza”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

You will find nice places at the beach with good services, food and drinks. Get a buggy ride on the dunes. The ocean is clean and with good temperature.

“Best buggy (dune-bashing) rides in Fortaleza area”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

We really enjoyed the buggy-ride in Cumbuco (also did it in Morro Branco, Lagoainha and Canoa Quebrada). It was the most extreme and fun! Also had a blast doing the ski-bunda.

“Wonderful Little Piece of Paradise”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

What can you say about a place that is being discovered rapidly by Brazilian and international tourist.....go there quickly before it looses its' charm. Great beaches and beach activities. Wonderful little restaurants and hotels. Friendly town that welcomes visitors. A real gem for a relaxing time. Hurry before the hordes of tourists discover it!

“Fun for tourists”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Dunes, emotion, buggy hides. Donkeys exposed. Some good restaurants. Some tourist traps. And wind. Lots of wind. A paradise for windsurfers and kite surfers. Not calm at all. Maybe dead at night. Who cares? Be a tourist. Ride the buggys. Enjoy. It`s nature with a human touch. Ah, and don`t forget to be acid. After a buggy ride, dive the lakes between the dunes. If possible, ask the driver to take you to Banana Lagoon. And become kid again.
