I am not sure why I didn't like this beach but i wasn't impressed. the water was murky, could have been the day we went but overall wasn't the best vibe. I like Praia de Pirangi Norte and Buzios much better.

We had a great time at this beach. Is really close to Natal downtown, so when we went for some plane no so good, we returned for this beach, because is always good. There is a nice restaurant with good food at a reasonable price, and you can have a lunch looking the waves. Is really lovely and poorly known.... More

There's a place that serves seafood by the beach, decorated with giant crabs outside. Nice food, and a perfect spot to chill while the kids enjoy the beach. Calm waters, perfect for kids.
