Pipa is a small beach town in north Brazil,  about an hour from Natal Airport. This small town has a bohemian air, and miles and miles of unspoilt beaches backing onto cliffs.
Pipa is not on the international tourist radar and the infrastructure is a little more basic than other areas, but for an authentic Brazilian experience, we can heartily say that Pipa is super fun.

Pipa - What to do

Light trekking, relaxing on a deserted beach with a book or wandering around the town with the locals are what this area is all about.
The waters off the coast are conservation zones for dolphins. We will organise day trips to see the protected animals playing in tranquil waters.

Pipa - Where to stay

There are several little boutique and independent hotels in this small town that mainly caters to domestic tourists. Our favourites is Toca da Goruja.

Our opinion- Pipa

You do need to take an internal flight and a short drive to get here, but, it is well worthwhile to experience these quieter, bohemian Brazilian beaches. For those looking for a bit more action and activity, then speak to us for alternatives.

Pipa - Top Tip

For an awesome, off-the-beaten-track beach experience, consider a few days' in Pipa combined with a journey out to the most beautiful beach islands in South America; Fernando de Noronha.
