This is one of the newest hotspots of Brazil for tourism. Obviously the sea was the main reason for it. Indeed the water is amazing even being cold. The best way to get here is by plane. Azul flies here! But it costs. But if time is more important than money for you as it is for me then just... More

the best part of this beach is that you can hire a boat to take you around. there are many fishing boats and a fish market where they bring their catch. close to this beach there is a path to Forno beach which is amazing.

Praia dos Anjos is another nice beach in Arraial do Cabo. This is where the fishing boats, tourist excursions boats, diving trip boats & the harbour are located. The sand is fine & creme coloured. The water is warmer than in Praia Grande, but because of the heavy motorised activity (boats), swimming areas here are less when compared to the... More

We loved this quiet calm beach. It is much less crowded than other beaches on Arraial do Cabo, but still well-served by beach chair and umbrella people. The view of the surrounding hills, both left and right, is spectacular. Facing directly east, it is the best beach from which to enjoy the morning sun.

This beach is more for fishermen and tours. It is full of boats and tour companies who take tourists to other areas of the Arraial do Cabo. Nothing to see here of real worth.

It's not acutally a beach for spending the day, it's just a place to take pictures and admire the landscape. It's by the port so there are a lot of boats sitting over there and the space left for the actual beach is pretty small. A great place to pass by and take pictures :)
