I liked the simplicity of the facilities, and the opportunity to enjoy the water sports: cayaks, stand up paddles, just bathing and walking around. The food is simple but well prepared. Coconut water is always a good drink, and those who praise caipifrutas, were very pleased.

Barra do cunhau is on the other side of the river. You can go with a balsa to the other side of the river and you will see a beautiful beach with kitesurfers and hardly anyone on the Beach. Enjoy this quiet place

A nice Little fishing village...slow mode just 30-35 km from Pipa. The small bars by the ocean is good and cheap.

If you came to Brazil for the wind - you should definitely spend a few days here. Flat water and waves - take your pick! :-)
