It has more than 100 beaches from Monday to Sunday: Iracema, Meireles and Futuro beaches are among the most popular options in town. Boat rides along the coast are offered at tourist spots, becoming a great opportunity to get a panoramic view of this beautiful city.
Located 65miles (104km) away from Fortaleza, Lagoinha is one of the greatest attractions of the Coast of the Setting Sun. This place is a peaceful fishing settlement which in the past had been used by French buccaneers as a port. In this earthly paradise, the tourist may enjoy buggy rides, typical trucks usually known as “pau-de-arara”, typical “jangada” sailing and much more. (Lunch not included)
Standing 14miles (22km) away from Fortaleza, in Porto das Dunas Beach, the fantastic Beach Park is a tourist complex with natural beauties and the “Acqua Park” (which is one of the largest theme parks by the sea in the entire world).
