  • Walking path under trees typical of the area and which constituted the primeval forest of these places. In some sections of the trail are enjoying truly magnificent views from the top of the beach and the sea below. Place that deserves more respect from visitors who do not disdain to leave food waste, cans and bottles.

  • Difficulty walking trails full of vegetation. We saw monkeys, iguanas. There is a breeding ground for turtles and rabbits. As you walk above the beaches could dolphins and turtles in the sea. You can get to praia do madeiro. The entrance is 15 reais per person.

  • Amazing new ride, fair price and amazing visuals. The trails are well marked, with several interesting charts with information. Several lookouts offer views of Madeiro Beach and the town of Pipa, not counting the stairs to the Tree. Very good, I recommend!

The views are stunning and you can observe turtles and dolphins. Nice Trails. Visit. ****
