Destination info

Highlights: Pretty much guaranteed wind and sunshine, this is a spot to #kiteandchill. The consistently strong easterly wind, warm water, and one of the biggest kite lagoons in all of Ceara makes Guajiru pretty epic for kiting. There’s not a lot of infrastructure in Guajiru however for other activities, nightlife, and more. Guajiru is definitely a “pure kite” type of destination. We recommend staying at one of the Pousadas on the beach to maximize kite & chill time! Also the drive from Fortaleza to Guajiru is not as bad as it is to Jericoacoara, and given the lack of infrastructure and things to do nearby, if you’re looking for other activities you may want to consider renting a car here.

Closest International Airport: Fortaleza (FOR)

Other Activities: Drive into Itarema. Go fishing. Other than that, it’s simple: eat, kite, chill.
