With enough activities to entertain everyone, this family friendly excursion is a must do when visiting Brazil!
Following a 22 mile (35km) scenic drive from Fortaleza, you'll reach the small fishing village of Cumbuco. Located in the metropolitan town of Caucaia, Cumbuco is a small laid-back Brazilian village with spectacular white sand dunes and beautiful empty beaches lined with coconut trees.
The sun shines almost all year round with an annual average temperature of 82 degrees Fahrenheit (28 Celcius). Explore the famous dunes and take an optional beach buggy tour that takes place on the moving sand dunes and small fresh water ponds. You will have the opportunity to ski-bunda (sand surf down the dunes into one of three ponds), rent a jet ski, ride on a banana boat or take a horse ride. This beach is also one of the best places in the world for year round wind and kite surfing. You may also choose to simply relax and walk the palm-lined deserted beaches. There is so much to see and do and the choice is all yours!
Your day finishes with a refreshing swim in the Parnamirim pond amidst picturesque white sand dunes.

We enjoyed learning about Fortaleza as we made our way to Cumbuco Beach. We were the only English speaking tourists so we were given our own tour guide which enabled us to leave the beach when we were ready. We paid extra for the dune buggy ride which was definitely worth it and along the way we stopped to skibumda down the dune into the water on small boards. It was fun. We then ate lunch at the barraca and hung out on the beach for a short while.
