The most affluent area of the city and also where most tourists stay. There is the Ponta Negra beach and most upscale hotels, shopping malls and restaurants. It used to be regarded as being significantly calmer and safer than other large cities but apparently it is not anymore. Just be careful when walking around.

There is plenty to do alone the beach. Restaurants, shops and fun stuff to do. The beach is about 2 miles long and very deep. It will get crowded on the weekends with people in small bathing suits, be ready if you are from the states.

We found the beach the best place to be when in Natal. All the trades people didn't put undue pressure on you to buy and you could stay there all day without moving a limb and have all your drink and food taken care of in front of you. the view of the large sand dune waterfall in Ponta Negra...

There isn't much to say about the place, it is a gorgeous beach of the northeastern region of Brazil. About the services, you can rent a parasol and some beach chairs for as little as R$7 and the beer costs just as much for the 600mL bottle. One thing that was off is that they don't prepare food at the... More

We went many times to this beach where we found nice restaurants and bars. The beach is nice for swimming and many people around. One of the best beaches of Natal.

This is a great beach to enjoy with family. The water is warm & the waves are gentle. For about 15 reais you can rent an umbrella and seats while you enjoy your coconut water. There are many vendors that come to sell you food & other stuff and the main street has turist suveneirs. Simply put a nice simple... More

Is the most popular beach, it gets really crowded with different sellers, the best option is to stay in one of the stops and borrow some shadow, if you drink or eat something there then you don have to pay the shadow. it was a bit crowded around 11am but around 2/3pm it gets awesome, not that many people!

Nice and relaxing beach. Calm water and cold drinks! Enjoy the warm sand and broad beach. More than enough space.
