The first stop is Mucuripe Beach, in the city area, where you can rental a paddle board and practice some stand up surfing with a breathtaking view. Oh, never tried it before? No experience is required and you can enjoy the warm water.

Not far from Fortaleza, the Porto das Dunas can offer you gorgeous views and a little bit of adventure. You can drive a 4x4 for thrills on the dunes. With a little more money, you can also take a helicopter to see all the coast from the Beach Park.
Driving around the dunes, you can ask for a hidden spot known by few: a lagoon called "Catu" where you can play on a natural and big water slide. The view and the fun is totally worth a little time. Go on the weekends.
