The Pipa beaches are some of the most famous in Brazil. We didn't take the direct route, that would be too easy. We took a dirt road rolling up and down hills and ultimately crossing a river delta on a small wooden ferry pushed by just one guy wading through the water. The trek was worth it for we discover a few pristine beaches with clear warm water teeming with fish. And it seemed all the crowds missed these beaches, settling for the famous Pipa beach about 20km farther up the coast.
