Beautiful beach, with a wonderful wall of vegetation behind it.

Difficult access through staircase with 150 steps or through Centre Beach, Dolphins Beach, then Madeiro Beach by walk during low tide period.

Difficult access means poorer infrastructure with higher prices. All spots to stay will force you to consume a minimum amount (~80 BRL), that increases during holidays, summer season (vendors said the number of ~300 BRL). I personally don't like to be forced to consume, there's no lower fee to just use the seats and sunshades.

Comparing to my previous stays at Tourinhos close to São Miguel do Gostoso (Quieter), Ponta Negra in Natal (Super Crowdy), it's easily the best. Comparing with Cotovelo Beach, close to Natal, Madeiro wins in beauty and loses in infrastructure, prices and quality food.

Comparing with other Beaches in Brazil, like some in Maragogi, Carneiros, and Pitinga in Arraial D'Ajuda, Madeiro is not unique as people advocate.

The beach has a good movement of people yet it's not crowdy. I haven't seen those annoying groups with poor music echoing here. Proper to swimming although it's open sea.

Nice surf lesson in English from guy from Eco surf for my little kids...he whooped and cheered made them feel like kings and they caught lots of waves. I had a couple of tranquility maracuja caipirinhas and bathed in the waves. There are some beach bars with a min spend of 20reais and you get a decent sunbed with a pad on it...not bad and not at all pushy for the drinks/ food which was nice ! A nice vibe on this beach...a happy fun place where you would have to be crazy to enjoy yourself ...! I think I got ripped off by the bikini seller but ...my bikini is very comfy and it was the lean season ! Occupational hazard of being a very white over fed British woman in my 40s travelling in Brazil with limited Portuguese !

This is a fantastic beach. I recommend the far right side.
Go around 9 am. You will find some nice natural pools by the rocks.
Clean and warm water.

Madeiro Beach was our favorite beach in Pipa. Located a little bit outside the city center, this beach combines exuberant nature and tourist structure. One must climb down some big stairs to get to the beach, but it’s worth it! We have been there two different days, and saw plenty of dolphins both times. Amazing! There are also many stands that offer places to seat and relax, serving food and beverages. The sea is calm and great for a swim.

Beautiful option if you want to stay away from the center beach, this beach has access through long stairs that go down from the rute, there are restaurants, beach bars, surf schools, and anything you could need. The down side is that this bay is a little more open than Baia dos Golphinhos and the sea is not that calm and is more windy.

If you want to learn how to surf, this is the place to go. Knee high to waist high waves in the summer. Long wave that gives you plenty of time to learn (or at least try) how to hang five or ten...
