Ponta Negra

In the southern end of the Via Costeira lies one of the best and most famous tourist spot in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte in Brazil: the Ponta Negra. A paradise in the northern region of Brazil, this used to be home for fishers and other working people but around the early 1900’s tourism businesses began taking over the area seeing as it has every potential to be a top tourist destination with its golden, sandy beaches.

Ponta Negra is about four kilometres long with Morro do Careca in the south being its main natural attraction with its combination of sea, mountain and dunes. Climbing in the hill is said to be forbidden but many people really don’t care. The beach stretch is almost always crowded with tourists, locals or foreigners. Shops, bars, restaurants, party houses and small shopping galleries can be found along the stretch of Erivan Franca.
