extensive and enormous basin in the rivermouth of the "Rio Jaguaribe".

Kitesurf Conditions:

» wind direction sideshore at the point to  onshore in the river itself from south east to east

» entrance to the spot from Canoa Quebrada along the beach or the village of Fortim

» moderate windswell to choppy conditions depending on the tides

» swell protection due to submerged sandbanks at low to medium tide

» fairly flat at the south east part of the river - upwind part

» current is moderate due to the size of the river

» partialy died mangroves with sharp shells beneath the surface in the mangrove area

» small footwalk required to reach the entry point close to the lighthouse

Location / Village:

» parking area in the harbour area then heading to the lighhouse

» barrachas in the harbour area but beside that no infrastructure

» average sized village but no touristic orientation - no accomodation

» access from Canoa Quebrada only by buggy or 4x4

» direct access from Parajuru along the beach only by experienced drivers with buggy and 4x4

Road Map / how to come:

pass through Fortaleza and take the CE 040 out of town - after approx. 8 go to the left and take the CE 025 in direction to Aquiraz - after 14 km in Aquiraz take the CE 040 - after 34 km you will arrive at Cascavel - keep on going in direction to Beberibe - follow the street CE 040, pass Sucatinga and keep on going to Aracati - after 34 km go to the left to Fortim - pass the village and stay on the eastern part going to the harbour - there you can park the car and walk through the mangroves in direction to the sea.


The river mouth of the "Rio Jaguaribe" is an enormous extensive basin with mangroves growing on the banks and offshore sand banks. The simplest way to reach the spot is from  the western developed part. The eastern shore, which is idle land, is only accessible from  Canoa Quebrada and you will need a 4x4 or buggy. There are parking lots at the harbour in the area of the Barrachas. To reach the kite spot take the path in direction to the lighthouse (Ponttal de Maceio). After a short walk at the beach through the mangroves you will get to an extensive beach that offers an impressing wing through the lighthouse and the surrounding sandstone rocks. The offshore sand banks block the swell and you will find only little wind waves. Partially died mangroves are in bank vicinity under the water surface that are grown-over with oysters. Therefore it's better to avoid this part and stay away from the beach. The wind direction is side onshore coming from the right until onshore, dependent in which part of the mouth zone you are. According to low tide and high tide there can be a strong current.
