Cruises from Fortaleza
Fortaleza is a major fishing port and fast growing tourist destination in the NE of Brazil. The warm climate, warm ocean waters, and the 25 km of urban sandy beaches are its major attractions. The scenery is complemented by the jangadas, small rafts used by many of the fishermen, while the Beach of the Future is a popular location with many restaurants built in the local style using straw and called Barracas de Praia or beach huts. The Praia do Futuro beach is about 7 km in length and is the preferred one for bathing and surfing, with its rustic restaurants built right on the beach.
