Great beach for kite surfing

The village is about 20 minutes from downtown Fortaleza. I hired a cab for half a day for 250 Reais. Lots of expats, plenty of eateries which are very reasonable.

The beach is very natural, it is suitable for surfers and windsurfers. There are not to many services or tents, so it is the best if you want a peaceful place without sellers.

The beach is clean but there are horses on the sand so it could smell a bit bad. We took a jangada ride, and it was the best part of the day. The restaurant is expensive and the pools were very dirty, just like every place around the tables and the pools. It was one of the best restaurants there.

You don't go there for the beach, it is a secondary attraction and is not very clean. You go mostly for other attractions (like buggy rides on the dunes, or horse and "jegue" rides), you sure can have some gorgeous views with some adventure.

This city/beach is one of my favorite spots for kitesurfing on the planet, consistent wind and flat lagoons make it perfect. There are some awesome restaurants and many on a budget in case you are on a sports on a budget trip, for those who do not kitesurf, they have this buggy trips which are also fun, not as fun...

Gorgeous, clean beach, lots of kite surfers to watch and buggy rides as well, it's very windy but that didn't bother us.

The wather was clean and the sand was clean. You could rent a buggie or go for a horse ride. Pleanty of sunchairs and you could walk at the beach quite a distance and feel safe.
