The beach is quiet compared to other beaches, but the landscape is not as amazing as we expected it. Dolphins are very far away.

One of many beaches in Pipa. It is next to Dolphin Bay so many people prefer the latter to spend the day, Madeiro Beach is more private.

great beach with several barracas and calm waters. We found it to be more pleasant than Praia do amor.

Excelent and Nice beach Dolphins swim near you. The Beach have a very good structure, lotes of bars, chairs and big umbrellas. You must be in good fisical condicion, because is 160 steps down and 160 steps up. Be carefully with the mares Beach.

Beautiful spot. Plenty of beach chairs and good food and drink on the beach. We saw dolphins out in the water throughout the day.

One of the best beaches in Nordeste! Defined by the Mata Atlântica, holds a nature reserve and regular visits from dolphins swiming among the surfers. Close to paradise.
