This is undoubtedly one of the destinations that most attract the attention of tourists who frequent the large northern river. THE Praia da Pipa is located in a small village in the municipality of South Tibau, 85 km south of the capital Christmas. The name has indigenous descent and means “between two waters”, a term that describes the geography around the attraction, which is surrounded by Lagoa de Guaraíras and the Atlantic Ocean.

upon arriving at Kite you come across beautiful beaches, charming hotels, excellent quality restaurants and a vibrant nightlife, which make the destination one of the most beautiful and trendy places in the Brazilian northeast. If you are looking for peace and more deserted landscapes, the ideal program is to walk alongside the multicolored cliffs and discover the trails that give access to viewpoints with impressive views of the region.

Further north of the village, the beach, the beaches of Baía dos Golfinhos and Madeiro, are the great sensation of tourists who visit the village of Kite. The bay is named after the dolphins that swim in its calm waters. Praia do Madeiro, on the other hand, is protected by an extensive area covered by Atlantic Forest and with rustic self-guided trails.

Praia do Madeiro

Elected one of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil, Praia do Madeiro is surrounded by cliffs and a lot of Atlantic Forest. Despite carrying a “roots” air, the attraction offers good options for restaurants on the beach, bars and even some inns with private access to the beach. This is one of the most popular beaches for surfers who land in the village.


Mirante do Chapadão is located between Praia do Amor and Praia do Minas, and is a great place to enjoy the phenomena of sunrise and sunset. Enjoy the paradisiacal scenery of Praia do Amor seen from above, to make souvenir photographs.

The protected area is home to the largest concentration of Atlantic Forest in Rio Grande do Norte, and offers 16 trails open to the public, with different levels of difficulty.

Sunset Bar Lookout

The Mirante Sunset Bar has the most beautiful view of Pipa to enjoy the sunset. The bar opens daily at 4pm and is located on the cliffs near Praia do Centro.

Praia do Curral (Dolphin Bay)

Praia do Curral is home to dozens of marine species, including the famous dolphins that live in the bay in front of the village. The beach is part of a protected area and is not accessible by car, which makes the attraction a deserted beach, with no structure of tents and protected by large cliffs.
