Full description
Start your day with pickup from your seafront hotel or at the meeting point and head to Águas Belas Beach, 60 kilometers (37 miles) from Fortaleza. Upon arrival, marvel at this hidden paradise. Though small in extension, Águas Belas' natural beauty fully compensates for its small geography. The perennial meeting of the Mal Cozinhado River with the Atlantic Ocean, amidst a carpet of white dunes, is a spectacle for nature lovers. While there, admire the changing scenery throughout the day and the delightful waters. Explore the trails that unveil, miles of unspoiled coastline, the tranquil Barra Nova beach with its unspoiled natural pools, and dozens of crystal-clear lagoons framed by lush vegetation. Soak up the scenery of dunes, reddish cliffs, and villages lost in the landscape. Enjoy free time relaxing at the beach, and savor a local lunch (not included). On the spot, you can also purchase an optional buggy ride, then a ferry will take you to cross the river. Return to Fortaleza around 4 PM.
