Smack bang in the middle of Pipa, this is super easy to get to, and has everything close to hand. Good shops, great food stalls and beach bars, and if you get there in the late afternoon when the tide is out, there are huge, shallow pools of lovely warm water to relax in. My kids loved it. And as... More

When the tide is low it is an marvelous walk along the beach! There are a lot of small " barracas " you can spend your day or time with rating and trinking ! But be careful when you chose your way down to the beach !! There are some easy ways but also some slippery steps !!

Is a beach village, relaxing spot, good for young people or groups, lots of things to do, beware with prices and values, do a little research on restaurants and hotels before booking

We spent 6 days in Pipa and maybe it was too much for us... great for relax and beach time, but after 6 days in Pipa, the town seems a bit boring... especially if you find the rain! If you are lucky and take advantage of the beach you will spend nice time.

Considering beaches in Brazil and specially in the Northeast, Praia da Pipa does not impress by its beauty. It's very simple and quite packed throughout the day and the whole year. The sea is very warm which is nice.

The town is basically one "L" shaped road with several streets leading down the hill to the beach. The water is a beautiful greenish blue and a beautiful long sandy beach. Only drawback is that in the town area, at high tide, the water comes right up to the beach bars and restaurants. Traversing the beach at high tide is... More

Pipa is certainly one of the most adorable spots in RN (State of Rio Grande do Norte). Its trendy shops, its lovely places to eat, its meandrous streets paved with stones, make of Pipa a lively breath of fresh air. The beaches here cater for every taste. Praia dos Enamorados (Love Beach) is one suitable for surfers, do to its... More

I went to visit a friend of mine who lives in Natal, Brazil. She took me to her favourite place, a fishing village called Pipa. It's a quaint little fishing village with the most amazing beaches! It's well worth a visit. U park your car and walk everywhere as everything is walking distance away. There are many restaurants and cafes... More

Great food. Beatifult beaches (and lots of them!). Good bars. A lot of stuff to do. Only 2h from natal. I recomend to rent a car if you don't like to depend on public transportation or tour guides.

Thank Tobias N
