Geologic Formation
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. To visit Dunas de Genipabu on your trip to Natal, use our Natal itinerary planner.

  • We love our Buggy Ride with the black guy! He showed us everything and made several legal maneuvers that made us laugh too much! Always prudent, helpful and taking lots of pictures of us! We love!

  • We went to Natal in January, but haven't been able to do this tour. Now in April, did the Bugguy dunes and is an unforgettable experience. Beautiful landscapes. Well worth

  • A walk in the dunes of Genipabu is mandatory for the Natal/RN. The buggy drivers do maneuvers in the dunes and show all the beauty of the place. The ride costs around $120.00 per person, four people by buggy. If you visit the beaches, there are ferry crossing the river Ceára-Mirim. Beautiful landscapes. And also, if you like, you can ride a camel. Worth checking out and have fun with this tour.
