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.

  • Beautiful place. Well worth doing the boat ride around the bar, crossing to the other side, where they begin the farms. You can combine with a trip to pipa, but allow at least one full day to Umar, the event is hosted in Pipa.

  • Pass the Barra do cunhau in the Buggy Ride in the southern portion of the eastern seaboard. We passed on the ferry. Walk worthwhile. Vista and beautiful beaches in the surroundings.

  • I made a 4 x 4 and one of the scripts was Barra do Cunhaú. The place is nice. Have a Buggueiros where they make a 10 minute tours that they charge $10. It also has a tent with Oyster, sacolá (which they call din din), and a delicious shrimp Taco. Worth the trip
