Praia da Lagoinha, Paraipaba, Ceara, Brazil
I think the first time I visited Lagoinha was in 2006 and immediately fell in love with the place.
Visited there frequently for Kiteboarding, and Surfing.
One day while surfing and getting push down the beach, I looked up at the massive dune above
and imagined friends waving at me from a huge house on the hill.
Yes. I have a VERY good imagination. : )
Pra-yah, gee La-go een-yah.
After a few more visits to the beach, decided to stop by the local court house (Cartorio)
in Paraipaba to see if I could track down the owner of that amazing piece of land.
Fast forward 6 months, and "KiteMare Brasil" became the proud owner of a lot.
The view while standing on that land (about 90 feet/ 30m above the beach was breathtaking.
So Beautiful!!!. The feeling while standing up there was pure bliss. : )
Traveling Northeastern Brazilian Coastline has been amazing!
Endless beaches and an endless summer from Macio to Recife, Joao Pessoa, Natal, Fortaleza,
Cumbuco, Pecem, Paracuru, Lagoinha, Flexeiras, Ilha do Guajiru, and up to Jeri (Jericoacoara).
Each place has it's own charm, but nothing struck me quite like Lagoinha.
If you haven't yet been there... do it.
Lagoinha is located 20 mins up the coast (NW) of Paracuru and about 75 minutes from Fortaleza.
Praia meaning Beach.
"Praia da Lagoinha" translates to Lagoinha Beach.
Paraipaba is the small city that you drive through about (10 min /10k) before arriving at the beach.
You could say Lagoinha is the Beach of Paraipaba, in State of Ceara
