Located about 70 miles (120 kms) from Fortaleza, Flecheiras is a simple, rustic fishing village with a lot of charm.  The precious coral reefs offshore create splendid natural pools during the low tide, while the palm trees, lagoons, and endless sand dunes paint a unique picturesque scenery.  The constant breeze makes the location ideal for wind related sports, such as kite surfing, and windsurfing.  <img src="flecheiras.jpg" alt="flecheiras" />

This tropical paradise has remained largely untouched till now as they are now setting up a few exclusive resorts (FYI Where to stay in Flecheiras: Orixas Art Hotel Resort (below), top class restaurants to attract the discerning tourist. From Rede Beach have a buggy pick you up and drive (or walk the 5 miles) down the beach to Flecheiras, for lunch at one of the cute restaurants lining the beach (above).

Since everyone at our hotel recommended it, we went to Mare Alta, a beach front restaurant for lunch. As expected there were many grilled fish options as well as different moquecas, beef, chicken and pasta with almost everything being served w/rice,beans, fries or potatoes. Most dishes cost R$35-R$55 for 2 people.  The food was very good but don’t expect to actually get what you order…my recommendation…. If you want something on the menu order something different and there’s a better chance you’ll get what you want;)
