Paracuru is a beach town in the northeastern Brazilian state of Ceará.


Get in[edit]

90 km from Fortaleza by fairly good roads; a handful of daily buses by Pegasus take about 2,5 hours.

Get around[edit]

The town is small and walkable.


  • Freshwater lagoons
  • Dunes
  • Costa do Sol Poente
  • Restingas
  • Beaches


Beaches are the main attraction. Careful with the rocks! Follow the locals into the water.

  • Kitesurfing is picking up as elsewhere along the coast of Ceará.
  • Surfing is popular, and there is a school and board rental on the beach.


Be aware that most shops close for lunch.



Paracuru has grown into a sort of regional nightlife hub on weekends, but occasionally some neighbouring town throws a party that dries out the local market. The square around the church has a string of pavement bars that keep going until after midnight.

  • Ventos Brasil (One block off the main square). Weekend disco. Free entry.
  • Papagay (the main square). Main bar/disco. Free entry.
  • Sweet Point (the main square). Chic bar specializing in quality cocktails. Free entry.


Several small inns and also some vacation houses for rent.
