The day we were there there was no one on this beach. Very nice to take pictures. The waves are very strong at this point, so be careful if you decide to swim.

If you want to relax away from the crowd next to the beach with a few tourists and a random fisherman, then that's the place for you :)

Our hotel Toca da Coruja has a its own area on Minas Beach! Very rugged coastline preferred by surfers because of the big waves, but very picturesque!

I use this beach every day of the year to walk my dogs. It is the most peace you will find in a normally very crowded Pipa. Most days of the year I am the only person there and the serenity is bliss. This is not a beach for swimming, gets very deep, very quick and a has heavy tidal... More

Fantastic quad bike trip with Pipa Aventura to Cibauma and Barra do Cunhau along the Chapadao cliffs and beach. Praia do Amor is beautiful but is surpassed in my view by the rugged and wild beauty of Praia das Minas. Highly recommended as you will see sights otherwise difficult to reach. Thanks Leandro for a great adventure.

This is a very long beach, but from a particular point you will definitely see some sea turtles in their natural habit! It is also a desert beach, not sure if it is good for swimming, but seeing the sea turtles from much closer than from Pipa Sanctuary is what makes this place special.
