The 10 Best Hotels In Praia de Pipa

Looking for the 10 best hotels in Praia de Pipa Brazil? Praia da Pipa, or just Pipa for short, is one of the finest beach towns along the sun-soaked north-east coast of Brazil. Year-round tropical sun, favorable winds and waves, cliffs, dunes, lagoons and wildlife as friendly as the locals make it a perfect escape to the sun most of the year.

Pipa can be as much fun in the daytime as it is at night. Boat trips at low-tide or a short beach walk take you to see the dolphins up close. Consistent swells and breaks make the area perfect for surfing and learning to surf. The Atlantic breezes that rush up the cliffs make kite-surfing and parasailing possible too, with courses for each if you are just beginning. Buggy and 4×4 trips take you to the dunes and lagoons around the area, with natural pools for snorkeling, sand boarding slopes and mangrove forests for sunset kayaking at Tibau do Sul. Praia de Pipa is great for those who like the sun, sea, sand, adventure, wildlife and plenty of activities. Visit the most amazing beaches in Brazil here, or on Pinterest.

    I like the short name for this place, Pipa 🙂 It’s cute. 

    I love the Praia de Pipa beach and its tall cliff, very dramatic, and no one’s there! Is that beach usually very quiet or does it get busy there? Praia do Amor is also gorgeous, all the beaches are beautiful, but those two are the ones I would visit first. 

    I love buggy tours and I can see that they offer several ones. Which one do you recommend the most?

      Boy, it just really depends on your taste as to which buggy ride to pick.  For me it’s the Pipa 4WD Off Road tour.  It gives a nice variety in that tour.

    Thanks for the great reviews on Brazil’s beaches. I am an avid beach goer and find your reviews very informative. If I came for a holiday of about 10 days, how much should I budget to bring with me? Also with Covid is it now safe to travel and would I have to go into quarantine when I arrive? it looks like the weather is pretty good all year long, but I’m not fond of the high tourist season. When would be the best time to visit where I can still access the shops, restaurants, etc but miss the crowds.

    Thanks

    Steve

    You provided comprehensive information on these 4 beautiful Brazilian beaches. Plus, some of the land adventures that are available. The hotels look very attractive. If we ever decide to go to Brazil for a vacation your site will come in very handy. 

    Can you say what the conditions are right now when the Pandemic is still raging there? What safety measures will be necessary to visit?

    Thanks.

    Praia da Pipa looks like a packed tourism center but also can’t beat the fresh air and weather. How nice it would be to be on one of those boats deep into the beach. It is stunning and the scenery is just the best being able to see the birds and sea life. Madeiro beach hotel has a nice outside scenery to go with it and how comforting the bed and interior is, like living in paradise. A perfect vacation for a family I would say of how relaxing it can, I’m curious any massaging centers or does that also go with whichever hotel you pick? There’s a lot of activities to do at the beaches it’s best to do it with friends or family, soccer at the beach sounds fun as well!!

      There are hotels that have massage services.  You’ll have to just pick a hotel with this service, however, you’ll  find that many do 🙂

    I just love browsing the amazing photos of the beach destinations on your website, and Praia da Pipa is another lovely surprise! The coastal Brazilian landscape is so drastically different from the flat beaches near my home. It’s so pretty to see the lush mountains reaching all the way to the beach! It also looks really affordable too! Thank you for sharing the helpful guide to visiting Praia da Pipa.

    My wife and I love to read travel destination reviews to check out warm weather destinations. We then pick one and go! Your review on Praia de Pipa sounds and looks like our next vacation destination. We are both avid surfers and love seafood. The extra bonus is being able to take a hike in Brazil’s lush green forests or jump into a kayak and watch a sunset. Your review and pictures paint a great warm weather place to enjoy the tropics. Thanks for the heads up!

    I am so ready to travel again. First Covid, then the horrible freeze in Texas and now some health issues have kept me home bound for over 2 years. I had never considered Brazil before, but after reading your wonderful post, ifs definitely on my short list for vacations. My family would love the beach and I could use the quiet.

    A friend, with whom I am going to Brazil for academical reasons, has his family living near Praia do Madeiro. He’s told me that it’s a great place to learn how to surf. The waves are good but not too aggressive for newbies. So, I think I will go there a book a couple of classes.

      I tried surfing and could do it, but it is very hard LOL.  My son is a surfer, and I would love to take him here for the surfing.  It is a great place to learn and surf.

    Along with the chance to see beautiful beaches, a lot of fun activities are also offered in Praia de Pipa. The dune buggy rides definitely look like something I’d be interested in, as does the 4WD tour. The kayak ride that comes with it is an additional adventure. There are also the restaurants that offer the chance to try Brazilian food.

    I went through your website and most of the articles are about travel locations in Brazil. Do you also do travel locations in other countries because I would love to know about other countries. I would go to Brazil simply because I love football and the football there is big. I will definitely consider this hotel the day I decide to go.

      Brazil shows up first and foremost because that is the most recent articles I have done.  I have done many articles on many different countries.  Just go to the search bar in the upper right corner and choose where you’d like to go.  Obviously I need to make that more visible LOL.  Thank you for letting me know Daniel.

    Love vacation destinations that are warm year-round, as I always get an itch to escape the cold that is New Jersey in January through March. The Praia de Pipa in Brazil looks like the perfect escape, and I’ve always wanted to go to Brazil! My adult kids would love the surfing, but I think I would stick to the sunset kayak adventure, as I enjoy slowly taking in nature (not getting tossed around by a wave ha ha).

      I agree.  I tried surfing with my son (he’s a surfer) a couple years back, and I prefer paddle boarding or kayaking hands down LOL.  Too hard on the body!
