Praia de Futuro, Fortaleza

4.0
#2 of 257 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.

  • Great beach for bathing, I really liked the sea and quieter, especially for those with children.

  • The tent we stayed in is Santa Praia and it is located in Praia do Futuro, a very organized place, with restaurant, sand courts, options of tables underneath the coconut trees, with shade and good service. Besides all this, I still enjoyed a unique beach, with clean sand, crystalline and refreshing water, with sand banks and natural pools. The waves change direction and alter the relief and height of the waters. Very interesting.

  • 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.
