Praia Cotovelo is a 30 minute bus ride south of Natal. It's a quieter beach than Ponta Negra but still with the usual beach drinks and food. My crab lunch was good. It's pleasant but unremarkable.

The beach is very dangerous with currents and its very deep. The surroundings are typical northeastern Brazil don't expect too much of Cotovelo Beach

This is a small beach in Natal. Locals like it very much because it is near the city but not in the city. Two main restaurants can be used as beach points. The smaller one is cheaper and in my opinion better.
