Located at the extreme southern end of the popular Ponta Negra, Morro do Careca includes a large dune that has become an iconic landmark of the city. This beach features an unusual combination of water, dunes, and lush vegetation, with its "Bald Hill" rising 120 m (374 ft) into the air. Though climbing of the hill was official forbidden in the 1990s in order to protect its fragile ecosystem against erosion, you can swim, snorkel, dive, kayak, windsurf, or simply relax right on the water’s edge. This entire area is completely urbanized, with numerous shops, bars, restaurants, and hotels. The sand is lined with huts selling food and drinks throughout the day and late into the night.

O morro do careca é um lugar incrivelmente lindo, sendo o cartão posta de Natal, e ficando hospedado em ponta negra procure hotel com vista para o morro do careca, que você verá a paisagem maravilhosa... more »The Bald Hill is an incredibly beautiful place, being the Christmas card, and staying in Ponta Negra look for hotel overlooking the hill of the bald, which you will see the wonderful scenery. The Bald Hill is closed and you can't go up there, and you can get on the edge of the black tip beach to see the wonderful place close by.
