The Northeast Sights

Praia do Amor

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

The reliably strong waves at Praia do Amor are what makes Pipa such a surfer's town. Surf schools offer boards and lessons, as well as lounge chairs, umbrellas, and waiter service for avid spectators. At the right-hand side of the beach, the water is calmer and offers great swimming, particularly in the natural pools that are formed during low tide. Stand atop the dusky red cliffs and look down over Praia do Amor and you will see that the shoreline curves in the shape of a heart. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets. Best for: partiers; sunrise; surfers; swimming; walking.
