Morro do Careca beach, Natal

(3.7/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web)
Located at the extreme southern end of the popular Ponta Negra, Morro do Careca beach includes a large dune that has become an iconic landmark of the city. This beach features an unusual combination of water, dunes, and lush vegetation, with its "Bald Hill" rising 120 m (374 ft) into the air. Though climbing of the hill was official forbidden in the 1990s in order to protect its fragile ecosystem against erosion, you can swim, snorkel, dive, kayak, windsurf, or simply relax right on the water’s edge. This entire area is completely urbanized, with numerous shops, bars, restaurants, and hotels. The sand is lined with huts selling food and drinks throughout the day and late into the night. Morro do Careca beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Natal Edition.

  • I was 8 days at Christmas and this was the first beach to visit and thanks to a contaminated shrimp that Maradona K07 tent, I and my family spent badly and we won't come back anymore. I thought that that beach kiosks exploring tourists and charge much more expensive than in the other.. time to pay the Bill of this quiosque...me charged about 30 of the most real and gave me no explanations ... stay experts.

  • We went to visit to have a record, but nearby there's a fence not to climb on the Hill, which ends up making it difficult to get a good photo. The place was packed!
