"Everything is kind of red here."

"Morro Branco" (White Hill) is in the municipal district of Beberibe, at approximately 80 km from Fortaleza, and it is possible to get to it by BR-116 or CE-040 highways. 

"Kilometers of cliffs."  

In Morro Branco the cliffs are colored in which the sands have 12 different colors. In the entrance of the great crags there are some huts where artisans make landscapes in bottles with sand, and these are the most typical product of the place.  

"This is "Morro Branco" (White Hill)."  

The action of the winds cut out a path of about 200 meters among the cliffs, opening passage among the crags forming a very different look. 

"There is a cool grotto in front of the beach."  

Maze - it is the main attraction. Countless little guides will offer their services for very moderate value. It is not necessary any guide to get to know the place, since it is not really a maze (you won't get lost), but if you want to listen to stories a little exaggerated and imaginative, hire one of the boys. It is not necessary to rent buggy to get to the entrance, that is very close of the entrance of the beach of Morro Branco. The entrance of the Maze is at the beach. Watch the marks of tires on the sand; be careful with the traffic at the place. 

"This is the Maze."  

"Paia das Fontes" (Fountains Beach) - waterspouts of water gush from the cliffs, providing a refreshing "shower" of fresh water. 

"Prehistoric view. "  

The raft trip offers the possibility of a refreshing sea bathing, far away (about 200 meters) from the beach. It is a safe trip; the native ones know the sea well. But in anyways, the raft has lifebelts, which you should be wearing before leaving. You'll get wet on the trip, so take care with your electronic equipment
