Praia de Futuro, Fortaleza

4.0
#2 of 256 in Outdoors in State of Ceara
The most sought after beach for locals, Praia de Futuro has strong surf that makes this a popular surfing destination that serves tropical drinks from numerous beach bars. Due to its position away from the main northern coast, this urban beach boasts the cleanest waters in the area. Although its location away from the city center means that huge crowds won't bother you, this is still a touristy spot lined with seaside resorts. An endless sea of shacks in all shapes and sizes sell alcoholic drinks and finger foods along the beach. While the waters are pleasant for a small dip, the strong currents, undertows, and large waves make the waters dangerous for long swims. A visit to Praia de Futuro represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Fortaleza trip itinerary builder website to plot your vacation.

  • Best beach structure is in Fortaleza Praia do Futuro. Tents with the highest level of comfort and safety for all

  • The beach is one of the best I know for bathing in the low tides. It's for adults, children, men and women. In the low tides are formed pools, some very large, warmer than the waves. In the low tides, the beach is no longer inviting. Besides the beach, the services of the tents are very convenient and are not expensive. Snacks, table chairs, shade, lunch, beverages etc are offered by well trained and competent staff. Belongings can be stored in rented safes (in some tents). Only caveat that requires care is the question of bathing ability. The beach has no signalling places unsuitable for bathing. But on the Internet one can consult the updated bathing-ability every week. As in several points of the Brazilian coastline, the beach of the future has places unsuitable for bathing. The week I was there I was based on a report of the previous week and, at the end of my stay, I made a new appointment, noting that the whole beach was inappropriate that week. One of the greatest riches of Fortaleza is the beach of the future. You should be treated very carefully. Another issue is safety care. On weekends, with the frequency of residents, it is common to appear dogs, loose, without restraint, which even take sea bathing encouraged by the owners. A pity the disrespect

  • Nice beach, but you need to pay attention on possible, though not probable, thefts. Don't be fooled by the constant winds (especially between August and October) or even partly cloudy days: the sun is treacherous and really burns here. Take tons of sunscreen with you.
  • Very beautiful and long stretch of beach.
