Praia do Futuro is an urban beach popular for its good swimming and beach barracas (restaurants).

Unlike many stretches of beach along Fortaleza’s coastline, Praia do Futuro does not have a coral reef near the shore, which makes it a preferred spot for paddling.

Several of the once rustic barracas have become large restaurants and entertainment venues in recent years, however, you will still find some that have remained unchanged for decades. Many of the barracas come alive on Thursday night when locals head to Praia do Futuro for a spot of crab eating and forró (Brazilian country music).

Praia do Futuro is not as busy as the other urban beaches in Fortaleza, and you are advised to catch a taxi to the area, particularly if you are visiting at night.

Practical Info

Praia do Futuro is about 13 km (8 mi) east of Fortaleza center.
