Ponta Negra Tours

South of the city, Ponta Negra is one of Natal’s most accessible beaches and fills up with locals on the weekends.

It’s a popular spot year-round and has seen a fair amount of development along its 3km (1.8mi) stretch. Its northern end has a pedestrian-only boardwalk and a few large resorts and tends to be a lot less lively than the rest of the beach, which is chock-full of restaurants, bars, pousadas, surfers and travelers.

Apart from taking its fair share of the natural beauty that seems to be a given along Natal’s coastline, Ponta Negra’s most impressive natural attraction is an enormous sand dune - the Morro da Careca - whose 120m (390ft) slopes sheer directly into the sea. These days, its sandy slopes can only be appreciated from the beach due to increased erosion and damage to the surrounding rainforest.

Practical Info

To get to Ponta Negra, catch a taxi or bus marked ‘Ponta Negra’ from along the Via Costeira south of Natal.
