"I liked this place! "  

Pitimbu was inhabited by the Indians tabajaras and potiguares, that besides the hunt and fishing, they extracted brazilwood, abundant on the area, which was changed for food with French. Maybe, for this reason, Pitimbu has been known for a long time, as "Porto dos Franceses" (French Port).  

"There are many cliffs here."  

Some attractions:  

"Praia do Pontal" (Point Beach) - it is to the north of the city of Pitimbu, you have to go by it when going to the deserted beaches to the north of the city.

Cliffs - they are between Point's and Abiaí's Mouth Beach. With their famous colored sands, used by the artisans to create colored drawings inside of glass bottles. It is an excellent beach to surf and to practice radical aquatic sports . 

"That's it! "  

"Farol" (Lighthouse) Beach - it is at 1Km, in front of Pitimbu and it has this name due to the existence of a lighthouse that signals the navigators of the entrance of the bay of Pitimbu.
