Atmosphere

the town, praia da pipa, is really touristic and it gets packed up with surfers from nearby cities on weekends and holidays. during the nonholiday weeks the local atmosphere is friendly if you are respectful. the place is a natural paradise and has the advantage that it isnt yet over exploited. so go check it out before it is.
