Brazilian locals love to visit Dunas Park for its walking, running, and trekking trails, and it makes a useful destination for travelers looking for a break in their packed schedules of sightseeing and long-haul flights. The scenery ranges from lush Atlantic Forest parkland to coastal sand dunes, with indigenous shrubland areas important for local wildlife preserved by the park itself.
The park also has its own adventure playground, an amphitheater, and exhibition space, where open-air plays and performances are regularly held, and where arts groups show their work year-round. Dunas Park can be explored alone and organically, or by following specially created trails that focus on the local flora and fauna. A research station and arboretum has engaging information about plants and conservation in Brazil, and it has around 50 species of indigenous trees growing in it.
