Nice beach, very typical

Beach with facilities and lot of sellers of food and stuff. Each "kiosque" offer fried food (probably not very earthy, but rich of flavor) and several drinks. Sea is nice and... read more

Beach with facilities and lot of sellers of food and stuff. Each "kiosque" offer fried food (probably not very earthy, but rich of flavor) and several drinks. Sea is nice and waves are good for surfing. Good place to relax and have fun with your children or friends

We loved it here. Not a particularly quiet place, but somehow that was part of the atmosphere. Always something going on, from the CD sellers with mobile carts and huge speakers, to horse rides, football shirts, caiprinha sellers, but also a darker side when darkness falls with ladies of the night on the seafront. Plenty of great restaurants on the... More

Not the best beach in Natal. Too many sellers and loud music. At night is good since there are many pubs and restaurants.

We stayed here for a week in June/July 2014. It is an awesome beach. We stayed across the road from the beach and went there everyday. Great for kids too - very flat and safe. Water was warm. Great food/goods vendors all day on the beach. Great weather. Can't wait to go back!

It is a simple beach that makes you not want to leave it. Several businesses around with interesting items/food, warm-ish water and (again) an amazing view. Even though I have no kids, I'd say it is a great place for them. Sea is calm and not deep. Parents seeking safety of their children should must definitely visit it.

Nice beach, but not a peaceful one. Noisy and excess offer of everything doesn't make the "tropical dream experience" that some people expect. Brazil haves better places to stay.

This beach was a little far from Natal downtown, and difficult ro reach, but now it"s connected with modern double road. So, it's the new "point" of the city and has lot of huge residential buildings, hotels and bars and restaurants. If you don't rent a car, it's a wonderful place to stay, because you will have almost everything you... More

I love Brazilian beaches. I've been to some all over the country. This one made me angry because many places that rent out umbrellas and chairs (you pay for them) which are also restaurants, charge you 15 reais if you buy anything from a beach vendor. Its on a page in their menu in Portuguese, but I bet most foreigners... More
