Fortaleza – Portuguese for 'fortress' – is a venerable city whose origins stretch back to the 17th century. It was during this period that Dutch settlers built the impressive Schoonenborch Fort. Today, Fortaleza is better known for its beaches, thanks to 34 kilometres of golden sands that have turned the city into a booming tourist hotspot. The World Cup kicks off here on 14th June with Uruguay v Costa Rica. Then, on 17th June, a South American affair sees hosts Brazil take on Mexico. Germany v Ghana takes place on 21st June followed by Greece v Ivory Coast on 24th. The winner of group B faces up to the group A runner-up on 29th, while there’s a quarter final tie scheduled for 4th July.

Apartments can be found on Iracema Beach and Porto das Dunas Beach; there are also chalets available within exclusive gated communities.

Things to Do in Fortaleza

The beaches along the Ceara coastline are world famous for their natural beauty. Some of the best are Jericoacoara and Canoa Quebrada beaches which offer sun loungers and umbrellas which line the golden sands. Swimming, jet skiing, windsurfing, sailing and a host of other watersports can all be enjoyed along these lovely beaches. The best beach for swimming and surfing is the Praia do Futuro as it does not have a reef close to shore. It is lined by barracas or rustic restaurants which provide beach equipment, refreshments and in some cases live entertainment and music too. Shopping for handicrafts from your Fortaleza holiday rental is a popular pastime in the many handicraft markets around the city. The Public Market and the Beira-Mar or Beach Fair are the best places for browsing and offer the lowest prices. Watch the street performers in the Praca José de Alencar.
