Barra do Cunhau, Praia da Pipa

(4.5/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Ride show mainly for those who enjoy trails, crossing the river can be made into rafts or even drive loud when the tide is low.

  • I could get this place a tour, since it is a retired pipe. It is of exceptional beauty, landscapes I had not seen before in Brazil. Calm waters and good choices for lunch.
