Party the night away

While Pipa tends to be laid-back and sleepy by day, it’s one of Northeast Brazil’s top nightlife destinations. Stroll the streets at night, and you’re likely to hear live music as you hop from one bar to the next along Av. Baía dos Golfinhos. Sip tropical cocktails at a bar perched above the water, or dance the night away at one of Pipa’s many clubs.
