Curral Beach, Praia da Pipa
(4.5/5 based on 110 reviews on the web)
Popularly known as Baía dos Golfinhos--or 'Dolphin Cove'--Curral Beach can only be accessed at low tide, as it lies at the base of imposing, but beautiful, red-streaked cliffs. With warm, shallow, and inviting water, it is impossible to resist joining the dolphins in the sea. Despite the difficulty of access, locals manage to bring down chairs and parasols to rent, and drinks to buy. Make Curral Beach a part of your Praia da Pipa vacation plans using our Praia da Pipa trip itinerary builder.

  • Following the Baía dos Golfinhos can walk to Praia do Curral when the tide is low. The strip of sand is quite large, there's no turmoil with a lot of people, is worth knowing.

  • A pretty nice beach, normally people prefer the madeiro beach or praia do amor, but praia do curral is a good option for those who want tranquility.

  • It can be reached through the low tide Beach, has some rocks along the way, or via boat, is one of the best places to admire the beautiful dolphins.
