  • Address: Cumbuco
  • Admission: Free

Fortaleza is blessed with many spectacular beaches and Cumbuco Beach is no exception. Just 45 minutes drive from the city and attached to a small fishing village, the beach is distinguished by its rolling white sand dunes and empty stretches of sand lined with coconut trees.

Cumbuco Beach is a popular spot for kite surfing, sand boarding and buggy tours - the latter involving a hair-raising ride over the bumps and inclines that will leave you giddy and white-knuckled and most likely eager for more!

There are more sedate activities available including horse riding and boat rides, although the most popular activity is of course soaking up the sun on the beach.

The beach fills up with locals on weekends but there is little to do in the Cumbuco at night – you’ll need to return to the city if you want to party.

Practical Info

Cumbuco is 37 km (23 mi) west of Fortaleza. Follow the signs for CE-090.
