Rio Grande do Norte is located in the northeastern part of the country and is considered by NASA, no less, as having the second purest quality of air, after Antartica.
Its 410 kilometers of sand, endless sun, coconut palms and lagoons are responsible for the fame of beaches, such as the secluded white sandy shores of Praia de Cajueiro, Genibapu (to the north of the capital, Natal), with sand dunes reaching 50 meters of height.
The Praia de Baía Formosa beach, the prettiest of the south coast, has “falésias”, stretches with reefs and very popular for surfing.
To the south, the beach of Praia do Sagi, a little more rustic, has clear waters and small dunes.
In Natal, beside the beaches, there are other tourist attractions, such as Fortaleza dos Reis Magos and the Parque das Dunas, the second largest urban park in the country
