Fortaleza Canoa Quebrada north Brazil, we were in a beach buggy to ride along the beautiful long beaches and wander through the amazing coloured sands. Canoa Quebrada is 164 kilometers from Fortaleza.
The terrain really looks like red rock however it is in fact sand.

Speeding along the sand
This was a terrific experience.
Canoa Quebrada (meaning broken canoe in Portuguese), known as the pearl of the east coast of Ceará, Brazil, is an international tourist beach resort 164 km from Fortaleza, in the municipality of Aracati. This small fishing village, among dunes and cliffs, has good views and is becoming popular with tourists.
Magnificent sand dunes
One of my favourite photos from this mini tour of the coast.
Fascinating foamy water.
Coming from Australia I grew up around some of the best beaches in the world, I have always been interested in the sand & the surf. So you can probably understand why I was keen to photograph the foamy Canoa Quebrada surf. 😎
