Fodor's Review

This long white-sand beach is an extremely popular summer vacation destination for residents of Natal. Boat rides to nearby coral reefs and beaches run frequently. Near the beach is the world's largest cashew tree, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Its circumference measures 500 meters (1,650 feet), and it's as big as roughly 70 normal cashew trees. The entrance fee is R$4, and includes free cashew nuts and cashew juice. There is a small market nearby for souvenirs. Amenities: food and drink; parking; toilets; water sports. Best for: walking.
