If you go to Natal don´t forget to go to Maracajaú, where you get the boat and go few km inside the ocean to dive, it´s just wonderfull!!! You can also buy few pictures inside the water....plenty of colorfull fishes come around the boat and the corals and umbelievable beautiful... before you get the boat they stop in a aqua park, wich is nice but you don´t have to stay, cross it and wait for the boat in the beach wich is one of the most beautiful i´ve ever seen, and there you can hire a fun bike with 4 weels and enjoy the beautiful coast...!!!!!!!!

A great spot for beginner or children, but if you are a professional diver this place will not meet your expectations. Snorkelling is totally recommended.
But the beache of Maracajau is just gorgeous and I could see some serious development along the cost, yet the village is still very remote which makes it very charming and tranquil.
I would like to return to Maracajau but not to dive, I just want to enjoy the beauty of this place, which is tryly magical.

Situated one hour driving north from Natal, the parrachos of Maracajau is a diving area some seven kilometers away from the coast.
There are some restaurants on the coast from where you can take a motorboat or a ferry-like to the reefs. Better book in advance from your hotel for transportation and water-transfer since it is full all over the summer season.
Expect to pay US$ 70 for a cab from Natal up to four passengers, and US$ 25 each for the water transfer(a little more if you opt for the fastest motor-boats).
Take your snorkell with you, it is not worth the scuba diving. Be sure to check the tide since you can not enjoy if it is higher than 3 ft. due to the oceanflow.
Avoid weekends, it is too crowd to go for a enjoyable diving. Also do not expect a fantastic diving experience. If the tide is low and the weather is clear, it is OK.
Been there some 5 years ago and returned just a few days from now, it degraded a lot from then.
