We will be happy to help you find the best solution, so if you need assistance with this part, don't hesitate to be in touch.

  • Trips (Boat, Buggy, Downwinders)

    Our shady coconut palms and parasols, sun loungers, bean bags and hammocks invite you to relax, listen to music and to read. There’s also free Wi-Fi throughout the station and in the restaurant. And when you feel ready for action again, may we suggest:

    • A stroll along the sandy beach that seems to go on forever
    • Learn stand up paddling and paddle through the lagoon
    • Take a buggy trip through the gigantic dunes
    • Enjoy a boat excursion on the Rio Jaguaribe and be entranced by the unique beauty of Brazil. Fresh oysters are included.

    Canoa Quebrada:
    during the day, you can browse around the many small shops and enjoy a visit to Canoa’s renowned sand beach. In the evenings, the streets of Canoa are transformed into a lively, chaotic party mecca with a host of bars and clubs. Then, after midnight the revellers head towards the beach and the Freedom Bar, where they dance till the small hours to the sound of reggae. We’ll be happy to advise you on this when you arrive.

  • Buggy tours

    Explore the area by buggy on an exciting tour, e.g.

    • to Pontal do Maceio at the Fortim: swimming in the Rio Jaguaribe River, swimming in the natural caves in the Pontal and speeding over the sand dunes
    • to Uruau Beberibe: An action-packed ride over the sand dunes accompanied by a local from Uruau.
    • to Canoa Quebrada: We drive to the famous beach Canoa Quebrada, cross the river by ferry, continue on the sand dunes to the beach, then a tour of Canoa, swim, and eat delicious fish, crayfish or shrimp afterwards
    • to Morro Branco: an action ride over the sand dunes, walk through the Falesias, shopping on the beach, food and drink. With its impressive sandstone labyrinth, this beach is one of Ceará's most remarkable beaches. Continue with a visit to the arts and crafts market. The day will end on the beautiful sandy beach or in the nearby spa "Oca dor Índios"
  • Downwinders

    The north-east coast of Brazil, with its endless, gorgeous beaches, features superb conditions for downwind trips. For advanced riders, our local team offers downwind trips of varying lengths for different locations. Our truck will accompany you along the beach for the duration of the trip: if you run out of energy, we’ll be on hand to collect you.
