We drove down from Pipa to spend half a day, with a local buggy driver. This is a very relaxed place, very windy, yet that doesn't hinder a great stay at the inside lagoon beach, after taking the ferry across the bay. Fresh coconuts and...More

Go on low tide to Barra and you will find flat water in the well protected lagoona as well as waves in the open sea. Kite Extreme Point offers kite equipment if required, a shower, kite repair (hope you don't need it).

Nice break from the buggy ride to get to the other side of river. Comfortable and relaxing while you wait to get to the other side.

Not many international tourists at all. Nice beaches, very few stores. Some small food stores. Warm weather.

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.
