Barra do Cunhau, Praia da Pipa
(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Located at the point where the broad Curimataú River flows into the sea, the beaches of Barra do Cunhau are wide, peaceful, and nearly deserted. Choose between the tranquil waters of the estuary, protected by reefs and smooth as a lake, or the ocean surf outside. Conditions of both are perfect for kitesurfing and windsurfing, with the estuary especially good for beginners. Explore the mangroves on a boat ride, or sample some freshly caught and cooked shellfish, for which the area is known. Using our online itinerary creator, Praia da Pipa attractions like Barra do Cunhau can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Praia da barrinha, where you catch the ferry to get to pipa, form a pool of warm water, transparent and full of colorful fish at low tide, excellent for those with children. The site has several tents and accept credit card. The photos are beautiful. From there it crosses by ferry for about $15.00 to sibauma and follows in pavement of good quality to Pipa. Place signaled and quiet.

  • This place was part of a day-trip. We crossed sailing on a river of a superb colour up to the Bay of Formosa.Estuvimos in a parador observed landscape. The River joins the sea.
