On the water
Water details:A shore dump wave at high tide, some banks forming soft breaking waves with a swell at low tide. Up wind to Icarai or down wind 2km towards Cauipe and there are nice waves to play in. Tides start to change every 6 hours. During the peak of the tide it can be extremely choppy but decreasing as the tide starts going down.
When is flat
Relax on the beach, ride a horse, take a dune buggy ride, visit the city, check out the mountains, go wakeboarding...
Cumbuco for nice food, relaxed drinks with freinds and a party or two in the small bars.
Fortaleza for some really nice clubs, any night of the week.
