Drive down the narrow road, from the main road and take a right down at the beach. Park on the kite area.  During peak-season, there might not be any parking space left down at the beach.  Kiting is done here during low-tide.

Kiters and surfers gather on the midle of the Ponta Negra beach just south of Natal.  The sea is not protected, so you need to handle waves. 

North on the beach there are fancy hotels right at the beach with a massage stand behind hut nr K-25. South on the beach there are small restaurant and shops.
