Meio beach, Natal

1.7
#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.

    It was a favorite Beach, now no. The neighbourhood is middle class or upper-middle. With so many amazing, beaches go expressly to is, it makes no sense.

    The only thing that I visited in the Middle was a Carnival with several craft shops. The prices are very different, you have to search for to buy, because there's a lot of difference in stores. In this shopping center has a few lancherias and you don't have a lot of variety of snacks.

    Very quiet and nice beach to walk and be comfortable with the whole family and children. Recommend to everyone, well located and with several restaurants.

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.
