Located about 166 km south of Fortaleza, the small fishing village of Canoa Quebrada is one of the most beautiful beaches in Ceará state. Canoa Quebrada's main points of interest are its beaches, its buggy excursions, its dunes and falesias with heights of up to 30 meters, and its nightlife on Broadway, the main street.
Canoa Quebrada was declared an environment protected area, with an extension of 70,000 hectares from the Porto Canoa to the mouth of the Rio Jaguaribe. The local population has about 3,000 inhabitants between native, Brazilians and foreigners living, particularly Europe.

Rede Beach Resort is a small hotel (20 rooms) in Guajiru. It is situated on the beach, north of Fortaleza and just next to the towns of Flexeiras and Mundau.
It has been recently been taken over by three English guys and it really shows. They have built a fabulous pool, spa, TV lounge, gym, shop and revamped the somewhat predictable Brazilian menu into one everyone can find pleasing.
The rooms are big, have their own verrandahs with great sea views and are really rustic, which goes against the normal 80s appearence of many hotels I have stayed in around these parts.
The service is excellent with attentive professional staff.
It is not expensive either! If you are anywhere near Fortaleza, forget Jericoacoara, visit the guys at Rede Beach.
