Overview Of The Port Of Natal

About Natal
Natal is the capital and largest city of Rio Grande do Norte, a north-eastern state in Brazil, South America.

Explore the beautiful Dunes of Genipabu on a beach buggy or camel ride or take a challenging hike winding your way through the dunes at Parque das Dunas.

Explore the coral formations known as 'Parrachos de Maracajau' at Maracajau (around 50km from Natal)

Popular beaches include Barra de Cunhau and Barra de Tabatinga where dolphins can sometimes be spotted.

Forte dos Reis Magos dates back to around 1598 and was built to protect Brazil from invaders. Great views can be seen over the city and bridge. As it is a few miles out of town, taxis are advisable and a knowledge of Portuguese as there are no English speaking guides/information.

Pirangi Cashew Tree (Cajueiro de Pirangi) resembles a forest but is actually only one cashew tree which produces 60,000 nuts per year. You will also find local vendors and a handful of restaurants here.

Natal's small aquarium is an option for families with small children, among the exhibits are sharks, stingrays, fish and penguins.

Museums include the Museum of Popular Culture, Museum of Sacred Art (in Igreja Santo Antonio) and Museu Camara Cascudo.

Boat trips, helicopter tours and watersports are also available in the area.

Shopping options include Ponta Negra artisan's market, the Natal Shopping Centre, which is the oldest shopping venue in Natal, and the Praia Shopping Centre near the Ponta Negra Beach. Lace, hammocks and embroidered linens make good gifts.

Fresh fish and seafood (especially lobster and shrimp), local Brazilian dishes as well as international options such as Italian, Portuguese, Arabic and Japanese can be found here.

Local food to sample includes 'feijoada' (beef, pork and black bean stew) and 'acaraje' (fried black eyed peas served with spicy shrimps) from local street vendors.
