  • The ecological sanctuary is beautiful and worth a half-day visit, made very quiet to be able to observe the whole Park. In the Park we saw several birds, marmosets, and we can see dolphins by gazebo. Friendly staff, well organized site. The trails have lookouts are extensive and beautiful, but is a little tiring. Recommend taking water, insect repellent and maybe some snack, because there's no food for sale, but there are some picnic tables.

  • Ticket 15 reais per person. We walked the path of the viewpoints, in a shady forest trails. The viewpoints are very cute. We didn't see animals, lizards, birds or monkeys. In the viewpoint of the turtles, we saw many turtles sticking their heads, impossible to photograph because they returned to sink quickly. The Sanctuary has a staircase to the Praia de Madeiro, is improvised in the field.

  • On several trails marmosets viewpoints that give to see turtles and dolphins. Beautiful trails and well cared for. All this very cheap R $15.00 for people. Go in the morning to do the track and then get access to Madeiro Beach and enjoy the beach.

  • 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.
