During your stay, visit Natal, only ninety kilometers away and enjoy a day tour to the famous dunes of Genipabu. The tour on the dunes are with a local guide that drives the buggy along the dunes -– in this tour you can do a lot of activities like sand boarding and “skibunda” -- a slide on a sand dune that ends in the water (you will have lots of fun). It's an amazing tour that you can easily book in Pipa, and it's a good value for money.
