The beach of morro de careca is very nice, there are dolphins almost all year round. The fishermen bring back their fish from their fishing at open sea. The waves are very calm... read more

We stayed super close to this beach, and I'm glad we listened to all the review on trustworthy places on the web. Anyway, what is cool about this beach is staying near a historical place with tons of stuff to do from paddle surfing, to some jet thing that makes seem like you're flying, tons of bars and crepes places...

The beach of morro de careca is very nice, there are dolphins almost all year round. The fishermen bring back their fish from their fishing at open sea. The waves are very calm, it is optimal for young children. But...there are also many young ones who want to steal. My advice: no jewelry, no camera, no phone and never go... More

If you are in Natal, Ponta Negra is worth visiting. And you have Morro do Careca right in front of you. It´s not a high hill but you can't no longer climb all the way to the top. I'm sure you will take lot´s of pictures of the 'morro' (hill in English).

Tis is a nice beach, but it has limited structure. The sea is calm and warm but due to its location might be a bit dirty.

I loved to walk the beachside taking photos and entering the water from time to time. The waves are very high so it is really just entering the water, no swimming.

The beach is cool, some small waver that you can catch in the 'jacaré' style. Good food on the tents on the sand, cold beer, it was just fine!

Hello guys! Well, actually the view is really beatiful. But that´s all... Once you realize that you´re going to be in a place where you won´t have any bar services, any decent restaurants, and evenmore, you´ll have to care about being robbed, what will be the point? I don´t recommend this place definetely!

A nice natural area but lacking any interpretation or facilities for visitors, and plagued by the noisy and filthy beachgoers.
