Other Great Outdoors
“Além de ser uma paisagem ampla da cidade encontrando todo o litoral natalense, é um lugar perfeito para tomar banho de mar. Aqui a água calma, com poucas ondas e é imperdível fazer standup paddle (SUP) . Veja a tábua de marés escolha ir quando estiver seca que terá uma ampla área para caminhar. O sol refletido na areia é de tirar o fôlego!”

Point of Interest
“Fort built by the Portuguese colonists and later renovated and improved by the Dutch settlement. This is, perhaps, the most iconic building of Natal and is a nice visit. The local government needs to take care of it better but it still nice for a quick tour and history of the place.”
