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.

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
