In a country of glorious coastlines, Ceará has one of the most glorious of all: almost 370mi (600km) of beautiful and varied beaches, from idyllic little palm-fringed bays to 12mi (20km) strips washed by ocean breakers. From the busy urban beaches of Fortaleza, to hip Jericoacoara, to the smallest of fishing villages where people still sail jangadas (triangular-sailed fishing boats), Ceará has everything you could wish for in terms of beach ambience.
