City of the Sun

The promise of sun, sand, and surf generates plenty of tourism in Natal. Blessed with wide, arcing beaches and impressive sand dunes, the coastal city of around 860,000 people serves as an excellent destination for those wanting a carefree beach holiday. Although nicknamed "City of the Sun," Natal remains just as vibrant after the sun goes down, with an energetic nightlife centered primarily around the city's tourist hot spots in the south. Natal has long had a reputation as the safest major city in Brazil, although trends suggest it might be getting less secure. In the build up to your vacation in Natal, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Brazil day trip planner.

Where to stay in Natal

Looking to enjoy the best beaches and soak up the holiday atmosphere, most visitors eschew the city center when it comes to accommodations in Natal. Instead, many look to the southern beachside neighborhood of Ponta Negra, which brims with tourist resorts and the accompanying bars, restaurants, and cafes. If you want to escape the tourist route and experience the city itself, you'll find plenty of options along the beachside boulevard of Av. Presidente Cafe Filho--a stone's throw from the beach and the city center. For something much quieter, surrounded by rolling dunes and clear waters, stay on the seafront next to Parque das Dunas.
