You must visit this beach if you go to Pipa. Even though you have to be careful with tides, it's a great beach with warmer waters... plus you can always see dolphins (literally) that swim around and even interact with people.

The only way to get to Praia dos golfinhos or Dolphins bay, is walking through the beach of Pipa or through Madeiros beach. In order to get to this beach, you must walk through a bunch of rocks, therefore it´s very important that you wear adequate footwear. It´s very important that you leave the beach before the tide rises, because... More

Beautiful bay and if you have luck you will se dolphins there. It depends the time of the year. You have to go early in the morning because after a high tide you will have to stay until the low tide around 6:00pm.

We (me and my girlfriend) are nature lovers and had an amazing time with the dolphins at the Dolphin Bay. Really. The beach was so calm and waveless that we were floating far away from the sand with the dolphins surrounding us. It was amazing! They were very kind and willing to show themselves (but no one got close to... More

Its true and a real pleasure. Beaches are not busy and wonderful sand. Be careful to choose a beach with steps off the beach - so that you can stay all day.

Very nice beach, not easy to reach though. Make sure to check out the tide table before you go there. But worth the 'struggle'! Very nice to see the Dolphins swim around while you're swimming in the sea yourself

This place is the paradise, you must go there. What a scene, warm water, very chilled and you even get to see dolphins... and without the need to go into the sea, I was sunbathing and my boyfriend was in the water, the Dolphins were more or less 300metres away from him.

Access is only at low tide via the beach, but when you get there you can rent some seats under an umbrella or just dump your things on the sand and take a dip. Yes there definitely are dolphins in the bay and they swim very close to the beach. The boat operators taking tourist out into the bay for... More
