The tide goes out here far so kids can play here freely. It's also great for sunset if you want to chill on the beach with friends.

Obviously as central beach it is a little crowded. To get to other beached in Pipa you have to walk some distances going through some rocks, so obviously most people do not want to bother)

The main beach is a nice welcome to Pipa and only build anticipation of the nearby beaches as well. Many restaurants, lovely views of the cliffs, many vendors strolling the beach.

The first beach I went to was the center beach. Not bad, but certainly not the best beach at Pipa...

We didnt spend time here because Madeiro and even Golfinhos have better beaches, just keep walking and do not stop here. You can find lots of restaurant and it is easy accesible, just this!

The beach of the city center is nothing special but still ok with nice sand. There is a lot of restaurants to enjoy and at some spots some kinds of water sports are offered.

The beaches in Pipa are not impressive. The sea though, is very pleasant and warm. Amor and the Dolphin's Bay are the nicest beaches.

This beach is much busier to others we went to in the area. Much busier and very few sunloungers. HOWEVER there were loads of bar and restaurants, so if you want to go to the beach for a few hours drinking / partying, this is...More

It gets very crowded here, especially on weekends, but go for lunch to Barraca do Neide, where you should try the camarão alho e olho, com ou sem casca, and ask for the molho de Maracujá. Excellent, but watch out for vendors and the odd...More
