Morro do Careca
Rua Morro do Careca
+55 84 3232 9073 (Tourist Information)
Covered in vegetation on most of its surface, with large patches of visible sand traipsing to the ground, Morro do Careca is easily one of the city's most unique sights. The unusually tall sand dune is a spectacular natural phenomenon and forms a picturesque backdrop to the Ponta Negra Beach. Once among the city's most visited tourist attractions, the dune has been closed to the public to conserve its sensitive natural elements. Some of the best views of the dune can be enjoyed from the southern part of the beach.
