Dolphin Viewing in Pipa

Baía dos Golfinhos, immediately to the west of Praia da Pipa, is where you can get up close and personal with dolphins within about 2½ hours either side of low tide. The area is backed by cliffs and accessible on foot only from the main beach – during which time you can get cold beer, coconuts and caipirinhas from enterprising locals. Try to avoid viewing dolphins from the boat tours; they do not all have a reputation for properly respecting the marine life or the environmental rules in place.
