Natal Tourism

Visit Natal - Best of Natal

Natal is the best place you can visit if you’re looking for a Brazilian beach town holiday. With beaches a dime a dozen, a happening night life scene and year round sunshine, you’ll have to come up with a really good reason to not visit Natal. Rightly referred to as the city made up of sand, it’s difficult to escape the grains of it wherever you travel in the city.

There is a cultural side to Natal too, which can be very rewarding if you take the effort to discover it. The Forte dos Reis Magos is an important moment in the history of the city and beautiful landmark standing at the tip of the reef of Natal’s peninsula; The Museu Camara Cascudo is a comprehensive museum that tells you everything you need to know about the state of Rio Grande do Norte while the Alberto Maranhao Theatre is a brilliant piece of architecture.

Natal Travel Tips

Essential travel information and Natal tips for your visit

  • Safety is not Natal’s strongest virtue. Exercise a little more than necessary caution.
  • Keep an eye on your belongings; pickpockets are rampant and petty thievery is common.
  • Carry just enough cash for the day and avoid carrying any flashy stuff that might attract unwanted attention.
  • Once you’re back in the hotel for the night, try not to step out. Certain areas of Natal are known for drugs and gang violence.
