The promise of sun, sand, and surf generates plenty of tourism in Natal.
Bring the kids along to Ponta Negra Beach and Pipa Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Natal: Cajueiro de Pirangi (in Parnamirim) and Praia da Pipa (Chapadao Hill & Baia dos Golfinhos). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Dunas de Genipabu, stop by Hand Craft Potiguar Mall, enjoy the sea views from Reis Magos Fortress, and make a trip to Ponte Newton Navarro.
