We study normal CR compact manifolds in dimension 3. For a choice of a CR Reeb vector field, we associate a Sasakian metric on them, and we classify those metrics. As a consequence, the underlying manifolds are topologically finite quotients of \(S^3\) or of a non-flat circle bundle over a Riemann surface of positive genus. In the latter case, we prove that their CR automorphisms group is a finite extension of \(S^1\), and we classify the normal CR structures on these manifolds.
