Fortaleza’s coastline of more than 30 kilometers of beaches makes it the perfect destination for a bachelor party getaway with the boys.

During the day Fortaleza boasts tons of leisure activities, from kite surfing and paragliding or just lounging on any of the 25 beaches.

At night, there’s no shortage of clubs and bars to explore. The sprawling Crocobeach complex on Praia do Futuro often showcases live music and DJs.

The rock and roll bar is located in the Dragão do Mar area and often caters to a surf crowd.
