Traveling to Canoua Quebrada

By: Aoureliou Televko

A romantic place I must say. You can visit it any time of the year, because it has always 29-30C during the day and 23C at night. It's hard to believe that Canoa was just a fisherman village for not very long ago. Only in 1970's it started to grow, when the rest of the world discovered it. First ones to go there were hippies. It was not easy 3 decades ago to access the place because there were no developed roads. In time, the beauty of Canoa Quiebrada made it more popular. More and more people wanted to spend their vacations there. Because of that, nowadays-large roads will take you there. It is located at about 155 km from Fortaleza.

After just 1.5 hours drive, you will face a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean, which is amazingly pared with the contrast of the orange cliffs that surround the beach as long as you can see with a naked eye. In addition, you can take a bus to Canoa Quebrada. The only company that makes the direct path to the city is the Sao Benedito (St. Benedict) and it is inexpensive, it is just R$ 17.50 (round trip).

We were completely under the spell of beauty when we so the village. The blue sky is so big, that you fill like waking in the sky. It is a must to watch the sunset from the dunes there, it's spectacular.Nights are warm, and waking under the stars fills like magic. The main road is tightly aligned from both sides with gift shops, pizzerias and restaurants of all sorts. Canoa Quebrada offers lots of pousadas and small hotels in all ranges. You can book them ahead of time even online.

ATTRACTIONS
First you can take a tour on buggy to Foz do Rio Jaguaribe, it lasts for about two hours. The hall way goes trough the dunes. In the middle of the road, there are places where you can do skibunda oh the sand boards. The tour takes you to the delta of the river Jaguaribe. There the river meets the see and shows you one of the most beautiful scenery around. The return trip is by the beach when it is still dry.

There is another tour on buggy, which will take you along the beaches, to the south. Along the trip you will admire the orange-reddish cliffs. The final destination is a The Great Dune, from where you can see Canoa Quebrada. At the end of the day it is grate to walk to The Sunset Dune, as I mentioned before the view is fantastic, and don't rush to comeback after the sunset, take a blanket with you and enjoy the moon and the stars, believe me it is an incredible experience.
