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.
- Even though the beach has no opening or closing time, the town starts shutting down as the night sets in.
- Genipabu is around 45 minutes from Natal; buses leave from the Rodoviario Velho every half hour.
- Barraca Brisa do Mar
- Churrascaria Rancho Da Pipa
- Lua Cheia

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.
