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.

Dunas de Genipabu Reviews
Incrível, fechamos para o Buggy buscar a gente no hotel. A vista das dunas de Genipabu é simplesmente linda e um pouco de emoção no passeio do buggy já foi o suficiente e seguro. Pegamos época de chuv... more »Amazing, we close for the Buggy to pick us up at the hotel. The view of the dunes of Genipabu is simply beautiful and a little excitement on the buggy ride was already enough and safe. We took a rainy season in Natal, but on the day of the tour the weather was cloudy and a little raining, with the sun popping up sometimes and it worked, just don't do it if it's raining hard because you can't enjoy and see nothing. There are some people who take very nice photos on our own phone and at the end we have contributed.

When it's Christmas, do the ride with him, you won't regret it, except he takes some really good pictures. I'm going to leave his contact. He has Instagram too and posts some photos and videos of the rides he does. WhatsApp 084 988326651 @rogeriobuggyturismo
Beautiful dunes, amazing views. There are plenty of restaurant options as well as vendors walking around. There's an artisan's market where you can buy gorgeous souvenirs. You may take a bug to sightsee. There are also options for young kids (private pools) and showers and bathrooms. To get there using public transportation, make sure you're well informed of the bus route schedules because there aren't many buslines, and Uber/Taxi drivers concentrate on different neighborhoods.
Great surroundings! Adventure all the time! Nice views! It's a must see!
