Famous for its gorgeous beaches and long sunny days, Fortaleza is a popular destination for warm stays on Brazil’s coastline. Fortaleza’s beaches are distinct from others due to their red cliffs, sand dunes and lagoons. When visitors are not taking a dip in Fortaleza’s cool waters or partaking in one of the many popular watersports, they are enjoying a refreshing Brazilian beer or a sweet Caipirinha, Brazil’s national cocktail. Here’s a list of the finest spots to do just that.

Praia do Futuruo


Bar, Pub Grub

Located on Praia do Futuro I, Crocobeach is much more than just a bar. At Crocobeach, guests are able to enjoy daily local events such as live comedy shows and musical acts. Situated in a large complex under awnings made of dried palm leaves, Crocobeach boasts bountiful seating and tables, a bar and restaurant, hammocks and even a swimming pool. The grounds are lush, green, and lined with coconut laden palm trees. Crocobeach is the ideal location to enjoy Fortaleza’s natural beauty and classic Brazilian cocktails all day.

Barraca G2

Bar, Pub Grub

Barraca G2 is a causal beach bar on Fortaleza’s Praia Mucuripe. Known for their inexpensive beers, coconut waters, and Caipirinhas, Barraca G2 is the ideal location to stop for a quick refreshment. Or, stay a little longer, share some drinks with friends, and enjoy one of Fortzaleza’s gorgeous sunsets. The bar’s ambiance is extremely laid-back, so there’s no need to dress up, guests can enjoy Barraca G2 in their swimwear and flip-flops.

Arpão Praia Bar

Bar, Seafood

On Praia do Futuro II, Arpão Praia Bar has been serving local beachgoers since 1989. The bar is well known for both drinks and delectable crab dishes (which visitors rave about) coming doused in a coconut milk sauce. Order the crab and pair it with their special cocktail, a kiwi caipiroska made of vodka, sugar and lime. Guests who really want the bar’s true experience should make sure to order the kiwi caiprioska with sake though, there’s just an added extra punch!

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
