Spend an absolutely carefree day at Futuro Beach, one of Fortaleza’s most popular urban beaches, which stretches nearly five miles long.
Depart from the pier and enjoy a brief drive across town to Futuro Beach, a spectacularly well-maintained stretch of sand in the shadow of the port. Because the ride is so short, you will have more than three hours at the beach to enjoy its countless charms.
Futuro Beach is one of Fortaleza’s most popular spots, so expect it to be vibrant. An area with plenty of lounge chairs has been reserved for your group, so you can comfortably settle in under the shade of an umbrella. The beach itself is wide, flat and nearly five miles long, encouraging you to stroll along the shore, admiring the ever-changing scenery. If the wind conditions are good, you might spot kite surfers zipping across the water.
However, if you wish to simply relax in the sun, that’s perfectly acceptable as this is your time to enjoy at your own pace. If you get thirsty or hungry, there is an abundance of kiosks up and down the beach, selling refreshments and even full meals. Seafood is a favorite especially dishes featuring fresh-caught crabs, fried fish and baked fish stew. To add to the excitement, there is usually Brazilian music playing somewhere, either live or recorded.
Following your time at Futuro Beach, you will rejoin your coach and drive the short distance back to the pier.
