Pipa is a very popular destination south of Natal, in the state of Rio Grande do Norte. Different groups come to Pipa, the party animals, the surfers, but also couples that want a bit of piece and quiet.
WE LIKE THE MOST: walk along the empty beaches during the low season; swimming with the dolphins; watching the turtles; those prawn crepes!
WE LIKE THE LEAST: the chaos during the high season, the precarious infraestructures
HOW TO GET THERE: by bus or by car from Natal
CAREFUL WITH: the tides, you won’t be able to walk to some beaches during the high tide; the pousadas in the centre of the village, incredibly noisy day and night during the high season
FAVOURITE PLACES: the baia dos Golfinhos (Dolphin’s bay), the praia do Amor (love beach)
PIECE OF ADVICE:
- if you get up early and walk to the Dolphin’s bay (you can walk from Pipa during the low tide) you will sea the dolphins swimming and running after fish really really close to the shore
- take water and a hat, in most beaches there isn’t a single shade
