Lagoa de Jenipabu
Jenipabu, along with Ponta Negra and Pipa, is one of the most visited places in Rio Grande do Norte.
Jenipabu gained fame because of the mobile dunes, where experienced buggy drivers take tourists for a wild ride; the dunes become a roller coster, where the buggy is the cart. The driver goes up hills you think are impossible to climb, then comes down, safely, in a way you think you are going to die.
Dromedaries in Jenipabu
After the buggy ride around the mobile dunes, you can also visit the fixed dunes. From the top of the fixed dunes, you have a wonderful view of the Lagoa de Jenipabu, and the beaches of Jenipabu, Graçandu and Pitangui; the Lagoa of Jenipabu deserves a visit by itself (there are bars serving food, and you can swim in the crystaline waters).
Back to the beach, you can have lunch at Restaurante 21, one of the postcards of Jenipabu. The restaurant has an uncomparable view: dunes, palm trees, the beaches, the waves. Right beside the restaurant, you can hire a board and practice a tropical version of snowboarding, called sandboarding: sit on a board an slide down the dunes to splash in the sea waters.
