Really nice beach. Nice and calm water, buggy trip. And you can do kite surf as well. You can find good restaurants and it is a great option if you do not want to go do Pipa.

The sorrounding of Barra do Cunhau is gorgeous. There is the river, the ocean, the dunes, the blue skies and the palm trees. What else could one ask for? A good idea is to eat in the farm with the best infrastructure in the whole area

For kiting it is good waves, and flatwater on the same spot. The wind was still very good (used a 9m2). Otherwise a small town with a few resturants. You can choose a expensive or cheap vacation. and its about 60 min to pipa by buss.

That is a very beautiful and tranquil place, with a paradisiac beach perfectly located just next to the mounth of the river Cunhau. There are some simple but good bars that dispose a great appetizers and drinks and the atmosphere is perfect for chilling out and enjoy the nature.

Barra de Cunhau is a fabulous village, with great beaches and terrific weather - at all times! The people were all very friendly. The walks on the beach, to die for! Turtle sanctuary - no fast moving buggys to dodge. Driving in to town, you must take a balsa ( a ferry ) if you are coming in from the... More
