Cumbuco is an extremely popular kite surf destination and therefore receives a large number of tourists from all over the world. The second half of the year is the best moment to enjoy the never ending winds of Ceará. If you are not an active kite-surfer take a basic course and get familiar with this facinating water sport. Beside of kite-surf enjoy the beaches of Cumbuco and visit the nearby fresh water lagoons out of which Lagoa do Banana is the most popular one and perfect for water activities, sunbathing and fun. Before the end of the day take a buggy drive over the dunes and admire a spectacular sunset from the top of them.
