High Sand Dunes

Incredible Sand Dunes are great for dune buggies !! Dunes overlook the ocean and you can see much for a long distance.

Natal's Amusement Park! So much to see and do!!! Try to arrange this outing at your hotel as all the drivers must be registered and they should provide a good service. Our driver was Guilherme Guerreiro, awesome guy and very well-known by everybody around! We told him he should become a politician as he knows so many people around and... More

The Rio Grande do Norte’s capital is a bright, high skylined but rather bland city that has swelled in popularity for native Brazilians as a place to holiday. Think Ft. Lauderdale or perhaps Daytona Beach when you were young – when Mom and Dad would throw you in the car and say “we’re going to Florida!” When it wasn’t Disney,... More

It was raining in Natal at 9am by the time we were picked up at our hotel but when we got closer Genipabu the sky cleared up and it was amazing. You cannot leave Natal without visiting the dunes. Great experience for kids of all ages (3-100)

This will be part of the buggy tour hired. The dunes in this part of the world is really beautiful, it is like riding in a dessert as it is so widespread with its beautiful white sand. Great nature and adventure! The buggy tours are a must in this part of Natal. Not for the faint hearted :)

Fantastic place to visit and spend some time contemplating the view. There are a lot of funny activities to do during the day and awesome places to visit. Recommended!

Must have! You can't go to Natal and don't do this tour. It is perfect. Try to negotiate the price with the drivers.

It is very well organised. My kids loved it, it takes just two hours and it ir fun. We rent a buggy just on the way to theDunes. It is cheaper than renting it from the hotel.

Beautiful beach. Treated with much more respect than Ponta negra. The Sandboard is nice, but its very expensive. Everything is tourist-oriented...for the good and for the bad... It has lots of activities: sandboard, camel, buggy rides and so on.
