  • If you like to enjoy a walk among trees, with magnificent views of the beaches of Pipa, - this is the place - from the "balcony of sighs", you'll see dolphins swimming in freedom.

  • The sanctuary is very easy to explore in its entirety, but is very badly signposted, and mostly has no attractive, except for the monkeys and the viewpoint where you can see from afar the turtles swim in the sea. To see the turtles must check the tides, since only are if this high tide.

  • Actually no I speak with every reason in the world because by mistake and lack of desire to then not she met properly. We were walking from the Centre along the main street (not time-consuming) and paying 15 real began to explore it. The theme that we have chosen the path on the left, where we only passed with rabbits and turtles in captivity, and then road ending on madeiro beach then, is already much more extensive to right on Bay Beach, and even out there thought find me monkeys to the less, but did not happen, by the tant I don't know if I can tell if it is worthwhile or not.

  • 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
  • I insisted on paying for this ride in Pipa. Good program for those with children, very educational. Has several tracks, from 300 metres to trails trails in kilometers. The best you can have a trail that leads to a staircase that gives access to praia do Madeiro (a very steep staircase, don't nominate for seniors or people with difficulty of locomotion). They provide a map with the location of the tracks, and they are also well signposted with plaques. Have areas to leave the car and follow the trails. Guide to cars without much force does not come down to the last parking lot (the third), to return the car has to be strong or it won't go up (has a big hill and the road is of uneven land, has no grip on the wheels of the car).
