JANUARY 2008: Stars
Once a calm fishing village, at present Canoa Quebrada has grown to a tourist attraction in the state of Ceará. The town was “discovered” by French filmmakers and hippies in the sixties and seventies of the last century. Not much later, the first tourists arrived, and the first accommodations appeared. Nowadays, many tourists pay a visit to Canoa Quebrada, not only for its natural beauty but also for its sparkling nightlife. The beaches of Canoa are bordered by high sand cliffs (falésias) with their bright orange, red and brown hues. Especially at sunrise and at sunset, these colorful cliffs offer spectacular contrasts with the bluish hues of the Atlantic Ocean. In the evening and at night, tourists enjoy a large number of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. The principal street is named Broadway. At day, I noticed this starred street, apparently the local Walk of Fame.
