Local brasilian resort

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

Nice lake, nothing very special though. Went here while driving around the whole area, when you pass here it's nice to make a stop.

I liked the simplicity of the facilities, and the opportunity to enjoy the water sports: cayaks, stand up paddles, just bathing and walking around. The food is simple but well prepared. Coconut water is always a good drink, and those who praise caipifrutas, were very pleased.

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.

If you came to Brazil for the wind - you should definitely spend a few days here. Flat water and waves - take your pick! :-)
