If you came to Pipa in search of intense experiences, a dune buggy ride is not to be missed. Lightweight and open-air with custom-designed tires for sandy and uneven surfaces, the dune buggy offers the ultimate interactive ride and the purest satisfaction
The boat “Maria Maria” is one of the best boat rides in the area. During the day you will get to know the beaches of Pipa until the Guaraíras Lagoon at Tibau do Sul and taste one of the best menus: a delicious lunch of sea food!
This is the main beach and the one where you will find the most bars and restaurants. Boat trips depart from the northern end of the beach. It is also benefits from direct access from the village without having to negotiate the cliffs. Here you will find the calmest water and therefore it is the most family orientated of the 4 beaches
Focus here is on surfing and chilling out. Most people hang out at the northern end of the beach with the view towards Chapadao. There is a great beach service for drinks and snacks and the oyster man will be happy to hand shuck as many as you can digest. The waves are perfect for surfing
The quietest of the 4 beaches and home to the dolphins that can be seen here on a daily basis. It is only really accessible by walking from Praia de Pipa as there is no access from the cliffs above which is home to the ecological reserve. At either end of this beach are the volcanic rocks which must be negotiated
Some people claim this is the most beautiful of the 4 beaches possibly because it combines elements of the all the others. It has the dramatic backdrop of the large cliffs edged by the Atlantic forest at one end that make Golfinhos and Praia de Pipa so distinctive. Madeiro has lots of palm trees
