Choose from leisurely camel rides or exciting beach buggy adventures to explore Dunas de Genipabu, located inside a world-famous environmental protection area. These shifting dunes are located on a beach noted for its secluded freshwater lagoon. The beach includes plenty of tourist facilities, such as hotels, inns, restaurants, and food kiosks. Many visitors opt to experience the sandbanks by sandboarding over them, starting on top of some of the highest dunes in the country and ending up right on the water’s edge. Intense winds shift the sand around, constantly creating new landscapes and surprising even frequent visitors with this ever-changing beach scenery. Don’t forget to bring a camera for your dune adventure, and your swimming gear for a refreshing dip in the lagoon.
