28°C Nov

Sunny city on the coast

Looking for a beach holiday combined with culture and a vibrant nightlife scene? Book flights to Fortaleza and discover a diverse metropolis on the Atlantic Ocean. Watch the magnificent sunsets from Ponte dos Ingleses and enjoy the lively party scene at Praia de Iracema. Wander around the maze of market stalls in the Mercado Central for one-of-a-kind souvenirs. Daredevils will love the Beach Park Acqua Resort with its 41-metre-high water slides. Looking for historic sights? Visit the Fortaleza de Nossa Senhora de Assunção, the fort where the city began in 1649.

Beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see

Fortaleza is a real beach town: the temperature rarely drops below 25 degrees Celsius and with 25 kilometres of beach you’ll never have to fight for a spot in the sun. Dive into the Atlantic Ocean at quiet Praia Futuro or go bargain hunting at the bustling night market on Praia Meireles. Arrive early in the evening at Praia de Mucuripe to watch the traditional fishing boats, or jangadas, return from a day at sea. Stop at the many beach restaurants, or barracas, to sample the catch of the day and sip a fruity cocktail. At night, party like a local at Praia de Iracema and dance until the early hours to catchy forró music. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Fortaleza now!

Pastel-coloured architecture

Ready to swap the beach for some culture? Head straight to the Centro Dragão do Mar de Arte e Cultura. This cultural complex houses a planetarium, a theatre, and museums for contemporary art and regional culture. Relax over a coffee or a snack at one of the many restaurants in the pastel-coloured historic buildings that surround the cultural centre. After a short break, stroll over to the Centro de Turismo: the cells in this former prison have been converted into small shops that sell handmade crafts and souvenirs. The José de Alencar Square is the perfect spot to conclude your cultural outing. Here you will find the restored historic Theatro José de Alencar as well as street artists who use the square as their stage to show off their art.
