Barra de Cunhaú

Natal is known for its spectacular beaches and Barra do Cunhau is no exception. Its clear blue ocean and white sands are backed by palm trees and mangroves - as saltwater meets freshwater at the mouth of the Curimatau River.

Cunhau, the small fishing village of the same name, has retained many of its original charms despite having switched from more traditional fishing to harvesting the abundant shrimp population in the surrounding waters.

Barra do Cunhau beach has perfect conditions for surfing and kite surfing but is still popular with swimmers – particularly where the reefs form natural pools between the mouths of the Catú and Curimatau rivers.
