Ponta Negra Beach, Natal

4.2
#1 of 59 in Outdoors in Natal
Ponta Negra Beach, a lively beach dotted by numerous convenient tourist facilities, has long been a beloved hang-out spot for both locals and passing visitors. The sand is lined with huts, locally called "barracas," selling food and drinks to beachgoers throughout the day, with several staying open late into the night. You can swim, dive, and snorkel in these calm waters, or spend the day browsing the many nearby shops, bars, clubs, and restaurants. Located at the extreme southern end of the beach is the famous Morro do Careca (Bald Hill), a large dune and an iconic landmark of the city. To the north of the beach is the Via Costeira (Coastal Way), a long road connecting this site with several other popular beaches along the coast.

  • Near the Morro do Careca the beach is without wave and give to make stand up. The water is warm and great for the bath.

  • The beach is beautiful, I was staying in a hotel right in front of it, and as every urban beach presents some problems. I would cross the street, go into the sea, stay in the water and walk back to the hotel. Very crowded, full of ambulants. The night a kind of mice appear, they told me the name, but I don't remember it now. During the day they stay hidden, the night goes out to eat the remains in the sand. A hotel clerk warned us, so we never walked the beach sand at night, just by the sidewalk. Come out to eat the remains in the sand
