About Genipabu, Natal

The second most popular beach of Natal, the Genipabu is particularly famous for its heavenly combination of the sun, sand, dunes and the warm water. Dubbed as one of the five most visited attractions, the dunes of the beach are so prominent that you can actually take a dune buggy ride. Camel back rides too are available; half an hour boat rides and snowboarding down the dunes are also some of the other fun activities you could indulge in.

An interesting nugget of information about the nuggets, the landscape of the dunes change in accordance with the Rio Grande do Norte coastline. A popular haunt during the summer, the Genipabu is recognized for its beauty more than anything else. The beach is a little off Natal, so set aside at least a day for this trip. The surrounding town starts shutting down as the sun sets in, so keep an eye on the time.

Genipabu, Natal Reviews

  • Fantastic incredibly beautiful seaside village about half an hour north by road from Natal's bridges across Rio Potengi from Natal, Rn. Beautiful safe to bathe beach lined with lots of beachside restaurants good for fish or meat dishes. Dunes above beach are awesome and maybe climbed by athletic & sure footed or tours led by buggy drivers available from US $60 through dunes from Genipabu village or from around US $ 100 from Natal. Tours may continue on to Pitangui & Cape Riangha eastern most point of Rio Grande do Norte state. In rainy season April to early August ;Genipabu near & after sunset is especially famous for it's mosquitos which seem to be a particular curse for fair skinned visitors. Hotel Genipabu high in hills with its own swimming pool tends to avoid the problems with mosquitos. Visitors should also try by car or buggy try the raft ferry at nearby Gracendu & see the seaside mansions of Natal's political elite. At weekends & in January & February village maybe at times crowded but midweek visits are usually quieter & much more rewarding.

  • Melhor praia da região de Natal, localizada no município de Extemoz, mas é super perto de Natal é possível ir de transporte público, R$3,35 a passagem do 160B Santa Rita ou então de bugue o passeio clássico saindo de Natal custa em média R$135,00 por pessoa o que achei caro já que tem que pagar as outras atrações a parte, como tirolesa. A praia é maravilhosa, limpa, com água clara, o encontro da duna com o mar é lindo. Tem barracas na praia onde dá para comer e tomar ducha.

  • Umas das mais lindas praia de RM se n for a melhor , com dunas passeios de Camelo e outros... Lá foi gravada a novela da Globo O Clone .
