from the commercial centre of praia da pipa there is a 10 minutes walk to the spot. but you can access to it by car as well. leave the car parked in the cliff, descend with the board and you are in the beach!
the uncrowded glassy morning is the best moment to surf. then it gets pretty loaded with up to 40 surfers but as there are nearly 4 constant waves along the beach, there is room for everybody
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.
