This beach where the sun rises has calm waters and good structure of tents. It is possible also at the tip near the hill of Careca the practice of stand up paddle and canoeing. Easy access and with several hotels in the locality.

Morro do Careca, the tallest sand dune of Natal and one of the city's most famous landmarks but you cannot go up anymore. For some reason it has been prohibited.

You can get great pics from the beach in Ponta Negra, the typical postcard of Natal. Is easy to get here, walking by the sea.
