Choose from leisurely camel rides or exciting beach buggy adventures to explore Dunas de Genipabu, located inside a world-famous environmental protection area. These shifting dunes are located on a beach noted for its secluded freshwater lagoon. The beach includes plenty of tourist facilities, such as hotels, inns, restaurants, and food kiosks. Many visitors opt to experience the sandbanks by sandboarding over them, starting on top of some of the highest dunes in the country and ending up right on the water’s edge. Intense winds shift the sand around, constantly creating new landscapes and surprising even frequent visitors with this ever-changing beach scenery. Don’t forget to bring a camera for your dune adventure, and your swimming gear for a refreshing dip in the lagoon.

Beautiful dunes, amazing views. There are plenty of restaurant options as well as vendors walking around. There's an artisan's market where you can buy gorgeous souvenirs. You may take a bug to sightsee. There are also options for young kids (private pools) and showers and bathrooms. To get there using public transportation, make sure you're well informed of the bus route schedules because there aren't many buslines, and Uber/Taxi drivers concentrate on different neighborhoods.
Great surroundings! Adventure all the time! Nice views! It's a must see!
