“Wonderful beach”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Probably the best beach close to Natal. The water was tranquile, beach not crowded and lots of space to walk. Had a really pleasant time. Spent the day at O Aventureiro Restaurant which was very good and provided infrastructure for the beach. Also took a 1.5hr boat trip no the Mar Azul boat. It was safe and lots of fun. Was able to see many dolphins and also to swim in the sea. Quite a bit of people got sea sick but ride is still great for kids.

“Pipa, fantastic magical beach!”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

Located in Northeastern Brazil, about 50 miles distance from Natal, Rio Grande do Norte state capital, Pipa is a gorgeous beach place where people from all over the world join together its spectacles. The place congregates a diversified landscape, from the white sand beaches to the preserved evergreen of the Atlantica forest, the astonishing cliffs, and the cutie little town with a diversity of restaurants, elegant stores and useful local service, Pipa is like a paradise!
To walk around the place in any season of the year you will need a pair of flip-flops (the most famous Brazilian brands sold in town), sunblock, swimming, surf, kite-surf, scuba dive and/or hiking stuff or just a ocean view room with a hammock! It's your choice! I choose to stay at the Luz da Lua Pousada (Bed&Breakfast) and I truly recommend the place. It's like being at home, or at your beach house, the staff is very friendly and the breakfast has local fresh fruits and juices. That was my third trip to Pipa! I will go back as many times as I possibly will, for sure!

“Beautiful cliffs”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

Pipa is an amazing place to stay a few days relaxing and walking around the beaches, or even enjoying the little city center at night (which I believe can be really crowded at the high season). All the bay is surrounded by beautiful cliffs with a nice sightseeing from the top, the beaches are a walking distance from each other, all of them are clean and the Dolphins Bay is such a great surprise :) Once there pay attention to the tide tables, even though you just want to walk by the coast. Some beaches get inaccessible at a certain hour of day, so it's important to always check if you are planning your day according to the low tide.
