  • Parque das Dunas is for mandatory in Natal. Amazing place, with beautiful landscapes, one more beautiful than the other. Did a buggy ride with the buggueiro Tuchão (9995-7564 84), it was adrenaline and emotion all the time.

  • The Park has a beautiful visual. From up there you can see the bridge and the towns of Extremoz and Christmas. The other side has the pond which is beautiful but unfortunately is almost dry. The location is beautiful to take pictures.

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.
