Meio beach, Natal

1.8
#23 of 26 in Beaches in Natal
Close to the city’s historic center, Meio beach is connected to two other beaches popular with families vacationing with small children. At low tide many natural pools of calm water are revealed along this beach. Children use these large puddles of clean water as their private swimming pools, as their parents relax on the sand. On this beach you can mingle with locals dropping by for a quick swim, walk along the busy boardwalk, try surfing at high tide, or sit down at a restaurant or bar for a quiet meal of fresh seafood. You can also find lots of large rocks scattered along the coastline, which visitors often use as diving platforms, or sunbathing/picnicking areas for the whole family.

  • Just been through it ... rough seas do not know whether it is good for a shower ... they say that is because it is open sea

  • Beach "popular". Seemed insecure. Some points of sewer in the sand. Recommended caution at night

  • I passed by the Meio beach several times. Has a nice look and a very nice Boardwalk. Had hosted me in this region in the 90. I saw that today is not a beach accessed by tourists to bath but worth knowing and take a walk in the region to take beautiful photos. I was very sad to see the hotel where I stayed at the time, considered the best Christmas hotel in that decade, the Hotel Magi, abandoned and according to information received from residents of the region that it will be demolished.

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.
