Reviews of Guajirú

At 210 km from Fortaleza, on the road to Jericoacoara, Guajiru beach is still little known to travellers. This fishing village of 800 inhabitants is the ideal place to relax away from the tourist beaches in the north-east of Brazil.

My suggestion:
It's time for you to try out the water sports. Take advantage of the very low prices (much lower than Forteleza) and not to choppy water to try surfing or kite surfing. 

On the way to Jericoacoara, our van stopped for a few hours at Guajiru beach. A few houses by the sea and colourful boats, Guajiru is still almost unknown to tourists.
Some kite surfers go there at weekends and on public holidays to take advantage of the beautiful and almost deserted beach.

During my journey, after an impromptu lunch in one of the fishermen's restaurants by the sea, I enjoyed the peacefulness of the beach. At low tide, the sea forms natural pools between the sandbars. It is lovely to swim in especially as the water, heated by the midday sun, quickly reached temperatures close to 30 degrees.

Unfortunately Guajiru was not the final destination on this trip, as it was soon time to leave, and I regretted not being able to stay longer.
