    The park consists of a win by the top of the cliffs in the middle of the Atlantic, between the Bay of Dolphins and Madeiro Beach providing a look amazing.

    The reserve is well-kept, with good vegetation and neat roads. Good views of beaches. No I see an animal :(

    This nature reserve is definitely worth a visit. We saw lots of little monkeys. The monkeys were really cute and came quite close. It gets nice and cool among the trees and there are some great views of the beaches below. This is a great activity choice for anyone who loves nature and physical activity. The views are stunning and you can observe turtles and dolphins. Nice Trails. Visit. ****

    Well worth a visit during your stay in Pipa. Lots of quaint trails through the jungle. We saw loads of wildlife. The local turtle hatching project also has a base there and there are wonderful cliff top views of Pipas best beaches

    The trails are very well cared for and well marked, in English and Portuguese. I really liked the idea of you be your own guide, and the map is very clear and explanatory. The landscapes are beautiful and the beach is beautiful, however, the descent by the "pirate ladder" should be made with caution, especially on rainy days. The viewpoints are great for shooting, well protected and marked, and can spot dolphins and turtles. Has an information Office of the Tamar project, and a few more banners on dolphins, fish, cattle, and other animals. It also has a small area with rabbits, tortoises and terrapins. What is very interesting because we can compare the last two with the turtles. I've been twice, and plan to go again to make the track longer.

    Unique place! Wonderful!!! Each track leads to a gazebo, where you can sit and admire the artwork of nature! Clean, organized, preserved! Has a staircase, long, narrow and dangerous where you can go down and get up to an unexplored part of Pipa beach. Worth much the ride!!! There are many trees and everything properly cataloged. Weeken break plates in Portuguese and English.
