Ponta Negra (lit. "Black Tip") is a famous beach and neighborhood located in the Brazilian city of Natal. Located in the extreme south of the beach is the Morro do Careca (Bald Hill), a large dune and an iconic landmark of the city.
I recommend this area when living in Natal. The beach is very clean, and there is a big sand dune nearby to sand surf. The area is full of restaurants and shops.
As with all Brazilian cities, caution is advised after dusk.
