Most people visit Natal for the beautiful beaches that string the coast and there’s certainly plenty to choose from. Some are only accessible by dune buggy such as Zumbi Beach whilst others can be reached by hire car.

A particular favourite is Maracajau, about an hour out of Natal city which is world renowned for its coral reef, the Parrachos de Maracajau, found about 4 miles offshore. There stunning coral formations are inhabited by a myriad of luminescent fish and as you might expect, several companies offer scuba diving trips to the reef.
