The city tore down the beach cafes a few years ago and only a few restaurants and bars remain, including on "happy street" the red light area, Teenagers (usually on skateboards) still go to Iracema and a few cheap hotels remain, but one has to go to Beira Mar for beach cafes.

Very nice beach, and very busy with constant vendors trying to sell you from shrimp to painting. It can be a bit dirty some locations but overall a great beach.

Beautiful beach, 10 minutes away from the city downtown. You can bath at this area, walk, eat. There are a lot of luxurious hotels nearby.

Iracema is the main character in a famous book, an Indian virgin of rare beauty as the author describes with an excess of adjectives. The beach is amazing when you first look at it: turquoise waters, yellow sand, palm tress. But then you start finding some odd ends: the sidewalk where one can jog ends abruptly in the middle of...

Nice beach with many attractions for the family in the surrounding area. Beach was clean, however, no parasols available. Beautiful skyline when viewed from one of the piers/bridges. Sea can be little rough, but from my experience that's the case with many Ceara beaches

That special beach it's very close to downtown or like they call " beira mar" or beachfront. Its a very good place to be with families, but not to swim..because it's very close to the hotels and restaurants. However you can take a lot of photos there!

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.

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.

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.
