Full description
After a morning pick up from your hotel in Natal, take a scenic 1.5-hour drive in an air-conditioned vehicle to the Barra de Cunhaú Beach, at the Potiguar coast.

Upon arrival, your first impression will be of standing in front of a huge freshwater lagoon instead of the Atlantic Ocean. Gaze in awe at this unique area, where the river meets the sea to create an optical illusion and unique green coloration.

Explore over 5-kilometers of dunes and beaches where the Curimataú and Catú rivers meander, filled with rich vegetation. The river is calm and almost without waves. Discover one of the ecological jewels of the Potiguar coast, a large mangrove that acts as a nursery for oysters, crabs, and other marine animals.
