Attraction details
Reviewed March 22, 2012

a fisherman small village,80km from Natal, beautiful beaches, open sea and river ,very good for kitesurf and fishing. On the low tide natural pools. You can also rent a bike or kayak. Still untouched by the tourism. Some restaurants fish speciality and small supermarkets. Night life only on saturdays but is very close to the famous Praia de Pipa. If you are looking for a peaceful and beautiful beach this is the place.

Barra de Cunhau is a fabulous village, with great beaches and terrific weather - at all times! The people were all very friendly. The walks on the beach, to die for! Turtle sanctuary - no fast moving buggys to dodge. Driving in to town, you must take a balsa ( a ferry ) if you are coming in from the north - oh, so charming. The resort - VIP Home of Casa da Estrela, located in the village, is where my wife and I stayed. The absolute luxury, combined with the community - our best and greatest vacation ever. I would reccomend the VIP home, or the village and a pousada, to anyone.
If you have the chance, go - you will not regret it.
