honestly i think there is nothing to write about places were the nature overhangs... i mean if you just watch images you may get a figure...which is still not enough. I've done almost 12/13 km jogging in one shot(6+6/6,5+6,5) spending over than one hour breathing the meaning of living

we went to the dolphins bay but didnt like if and also it can only be accessed at low tide. We were recommended to try Madeiro beach instead, and it was much better. There's access at all times, a number of bars/cafes with sunbeds etc, and serving good simple food as well. We spent most of the day there watching... More

Madeiro is a great place to learn to surf: the best school on the beach is Evolution, they are also volunteer lifeguards. They have a good range of soft boards and long and short. Experiencedo and generous with their time, knowledge and in the deals they give. Highly recommended. For a good massage try the lovely Damian and Rita :... More

We really enjoyed spending days at this lovely beach. The South (right hand) end has a lovely shallow pool where children can play without worrying about overly large waves. It's also the best place to learn to surf, beware of the sharp volcanic rocks, though. You can also walk to the cliffs at the northern end. We found the Madeiro... More

It is definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in Pipa! It is easier to swim than in other beaches. You can get there on foot from Praia do golfinhos or from santuario ecologico, a natural reserve. Just walk from Pipa along the main road - you'll get there in 15 minutes. Entrance to the sanctuary is 15 reais,... More
