Maracajaú is known as the Caribbean of the Rio Grande do Norte.
Far 60 km from Natal, in the city of Maxaranguape, Maracajaú surprises for its crystal waters, and its parrachos, coral reefs distant 7 km from the shore, which shelter hundreds of species of the beautiful oceanic fauna and flora.
With a great tourist infrastructure, Maracajaú is sure fun for the entire family, counting with the tourist complex Ma-Noa, with swimming pools and Aquatic Park, beyond restaurant.
The tourist also counts on boat strolls until the reefs.
Ideal for diving, either snorkeling
(with masks and snorkel) or baptism
(with cylinder), the parrachos shelter an enormous variety of fauna and flora composed for the most diverse and colored ornamental fishes, arraias, lobsters, seaweed, clams and octopuses. Always search professional orientation; in Maracajaú, there is the Maracajaú Diver
(website in portuguese), a company specialized in the parrachos diving.
