Paradise on Earth!!!

Breathtaking beach, lukewarm water and a soothing breeze. You can practice surfing and kite surf. It is a great beach to walk along it, too.

Do not hesitate to visit this place. Certainly, it is one of the most beautiful beaches in the northeast of Brazil. Safe and clean beach. White sand and sunny days all the time. Water is warm and clean.

Madeiro beach, with its great long stretch of white sand and fewer tourists when compared to the heavily more crowded Dolphins bay (Bahia dos golfinhos) it's the best beach in Pipa. With an astounding view wherever you're looking at: Whether the emerald water or the lush vegetation hanging from the cliffs, the place has something for everyone who loves nature.... More

This beach is beautiful and sometimes you can spot dolphin swimming around. The beach is accessible through a long staircase.

Wonderful, broad stretch of beach. Good waves for surfing year-round and the waters are filled with dolphins, what more do you want? Spent a few weeks in Tibau do Sul in 2010, and would love to go back! Extremely laid-back place.

Perfect sand, palm trees, dolphins - great swimming, surfing and walking. A short and very cheap minibus ride from Girrasois Lagoa resort.

This beach is located under cliffs, so its access is limited by long stairs, some located in hotels and others 2 or 3 publics. as the access is not too easy, there isn't many people on it. so, its calm, white sand, warm water and the nature is really beautiful, it's almost a wild beach.
