PIPA’S CITY CENTER
Home to dolphins and sea turtles, Pipa Beach is known for its crystal-clear and warm water beaches, huge coconut tree fields, natural pools and overlooks, majestic cliffs still covered in Atlantic Forest vegetation, very white dunes and coves.
Tourists come from all over the country and the globe for several reasons: surfing, boat touring, dune buggy riding, kayaking, horse riding, hiking and off-road driving through the Atlantic Forest.
This is, in fact, one of Pipa’s enchantments: it can combine an awe-inspiring scenario and a breathtaking tour with a charming and comfortable infrastructure, with bars, shops and restaurants serving international-level gastronomy. When in Pipa, more than experience one of the hotspots of Brazil’s Northeast region coast, you are sure to enjoy unforgettable days of fun and entertainment, or rest and calm if you would like, in the company of nature.
BAÍA DOS GOLFINHOS (DOLPHINS’ BAY)
Baía dos Golfinhos is blessed with calm sea; it is nearly a pool with gentle waves, where you get to be amazed by dolphins swimming around people. The cliffs are naturally painted a variety of colors, ranging from light pink to crimson tones. You may walk to this beach when the tide is low from Praia do Centro or Praia do Madeiro.
PRAIA DO AMOR
Praia do Amor is taken by surf lovers; the sea is rough and the wind blows hard. You may reach this beach on foot from Praia do Centro when the tide is low or you may walk the streets and then climb down a path and stairs skirting the cliff. Visitors may eat and drink from kiosks under a parasol, or try the sea on rental surfboards (surfing classes are available, if you need); they can even borrow a book or magazines from a stand.
This is how, by managing simple ideas and big challenges, such associative drive has been developing. We hope it can grow even bigger in the next years, since the wish to keep innovating and doing our best for all – guests, hotel staff and the whole tourism sector – to evolve is part of the DNA of both Toca da Coruja and Associação Roteiros de Charme.
