  Cumbuco, near Fortaleza
by perfectly_zen

There are wonderful beaches close to Fortaleza, not only Morro Branco or Canoa Quebrada....many of them have kilometers of dunes, lakes in the middle of the sand, cocconut trees, fishing villages, coloured cliffs, not to mention the untouched coastline....all you have to do is search one of your taste =P
Cumbuco is one long beach... with amazing houses on the interior, but barely none of them are placed right in front of the beach, which helps Cumbuco to keep its atmosphere...the sand is snowy white, almost the whole beach is crossed by a cocconut tree line. There´s a famous waterpark in Cumbuco, and in that part the beach is a bit urbanized, but if you walk some minutes on foot you´ll be able to find an empty marvellous beach... Better than a waterpark, that you can have at home, is walking up the buggy inside the dunes and contouring the beach....
There are others.....like Pecém , with a small fisherman´s village, and Parajuru, a tranquil beach near Morro Branco.
