Most popular beach in Pipa

It is a nice beach, but too many people for my taste. It is a beach with the easiest access, that is why many locals go there. Many restaurants and bars around.

Great beach we were there in la Serena at 6mts from the sea. It has a lot of stones but you get use to it to avoid then. Nice to enjoy the day and the prices are good. You have to negotiate the prices for all.

I can understand why this is so popular – the beach is beautiful! Be prepared for crowds, though, especially on a nice day. Great place to catch a boat to go see dolphins. Worth the drive!

A very nice beach for families with small children. But be aware, as the beach is a bit crowded at Saturdays and Sundays. The beach offers a good structure with beach restaurants

Saturday and Sunday is very busy...Monday to Friday is best. Walk toward Praia do Amor for more peace, quiet and pools at mare baixo, low tide. Tranquil music at Beach Club.

Pipa town is great! Little a great variety of things to do and super organized! More than 100 restaurants in town with a great variety!

Smack bang in the middle of Pipa, this is super easy to get to, and has everything close to hand. Good shops, great food stalls and beach bars, and if you get there in the late afternoon when the tide is out, there are huge, shallow pools of lovely warm water to relax in. My kids loved it. And as... More

When the tide is low it is an marvelous walk along the beach! There are a lot of small " barracas " you can spend your day or time with rating and trinking ! But be careful when you chose your way down to the beach !! There are some easy ways but also some slippery steps !!

Is a beach village, relaxing spot, good for young people or groups, lots of things to do, beware with prices and values, do a little research on restaurants and hotels before booking

We spent 6 days in Pipa and maybe it was too much for us... great for relax and beach time, but after 6 days in Pipa, the town seems a bit boring... especially if you find the rain! If you are lucky and take advantage of the beach you will spend nice time.
