I walked from Pipa to here not knowing the enteree price. 15 reales is alot for a poor backpacker as me. But I was there and the lady at the "reception" was really nice. Trails are easy and maintained perfect. Some info boards during the trails give you some info about animals and wildlife and some history lessons about the... More

If you love nature, you must go to this reserve of Atlantic Forest. It is an easy walk, and you can take different trails, from 1 hour to 2,5hrs. There are several mirantes with amazing views of Golfinho abd Madeiro beaches, and if you walk in silence you may even be lucky enough to see the little monkeys... also has... More

A good place for the ones who like to be in touch with nature, the animals, likes to walk through the forest and so on. It's also a good way to see the dolfins and the turtles from an upside point of view, and later, to reach the Madeiro beach through upstairs in the "forest". Specially good for children, but...

A pleasant walk over uncomplicated terrain. However little evidence of wildlife except for a number of enclosed turtles in an area about the half way stage of the walk. . There is a limited display of historical interest relating to turtles. At marked viewing points there are good sea and beach views.

It's great to take a rest from the beach and go on a grey day! You get to know a bit of local history and also have the opportunity to dive into native forest. There's a place there from where you may see the amazing big turtles coming up on their nautral habitat, the sea. It's something unique.

A one-day excursion by boat is a great experience. You will learn a lot about the local cultural development during the past centuries and how a local bio-environment can change due a a catastrophe occurred centuries ago. It is not about catastrophe causes negative impacts - it is to learn how catastrophes change the environment - nothing about bad or... More

In this place you could do several on foot trails, and see amazing views. Also they have ''Projeto Tamar'' very famous in world. With an app called Live Pipa, you can see in your smartphone gps how to find this place, its free and easy.

Quite close to the road in places, this has some lovely look out points to the beach. British Council displays in the display area which is by a pond with tortoises.Saw a giant frog down there. Access to the beach behind the display area,but steps as usual.Marmosets handy for photos.

We took here some of the best pictures of our trip to Pipa. You have several signposted paths to choose. It is great to walk inside the "mata atlantica", the local preserved jungle. We saw monkeys and sea turtles. The fare to access the park (10 R$) is worth value.
