Full description
Known as the high spirit beach, Canoa Quebrada is located 145 kilometers from Fortaleza, in the municipality of Aracati East Coast. Nationally and internationally known, it was a haven for hippies and naturalists in the 1970's. It is undoubtedly one of the most interesting places on this coast. 

Its natural beauties, legends and stories, and especially the energy infect those who visit it. Canoa Quebrada (Broken Canoe) has a stunning natural beauty, made up of cliffs, fixed and mobile dunes, natural oasis, reef formations, preservation areas, and fishing villages. It also has excellent lodging infrastructure and beach huts that offer restaurants, showers, and bathrooms. Fun is not lacking either. You can take one of the optional activities offered including buggy trips of the coast, rafting trips to the village of the high sea, trip, or even paragliding over the beach. The extensive coastal strip invites you to have a long walk and the flat beach sea to have a swim in the warm waters.
