Brava Beach, Arraial do Cabo

4.5
#7 of 12 in Parks in Arraial do Cabo
Brava Beach is a secluded beach with restricted access and mostly frequented by surfers. You can access it through trails and a staircase leading down to it, which provides you with an adventure, in and of itself. When the tide is high, you might not even see the sand any longer. There are very few vendors, which allows you to enjoy the pristine beauty in peace. Plan to see Brava Beach and other attractions that appeal to you using our Arraial do Cabo route website .

  • The view is great! The trail is light but at the time I was there the kill was too high. The entrance to the trail was barely noticeable. After the fork where the last sign for the brave Beach no more nominations. Tip: follow the signs to the hostel Tantomar because the trail is almost in front of the Inn.

  • Without detracting from the Caribbean, I prefer a thousand times with this place. Don't have to travel hours by plane, this only to 2.30 pm from Buenos Aires. and also the good treatment of the Brazilian for the tourist, feature recurring anywhere in Brazil!

  • Gorgeous Beach! Wasn’t too packed either! We got an umbrella and two chairs for 30R. They serve drinks and food right to your chairs too. Beers are about 10R each. Highly recommend!
  • My favorite beach in Buzios. Brava and Bravinha, two beaches separated by just a low stone formation that can be walked over, are the perfect place for those who appreciate calm and quiet and vast. It's unique shape allows waves to form on one side while the other remains perfectly still. Water is very clear, around 70 percent, and the sand is slightly pinkish. There are services such a umbrellas, seating and food and it's fairly not crowded. Bravinha also grants access to Praia Olho de Boi, the only nudist beach in Buzios, by climbing the left side hill.
  • But clean beach chairs and parasol are charged, plus single tent prices are well salted.

  • Best beach in Buzios. It's not trendy as some. Good to bring children and ensure a good fun. Despite the name the waves are nice and there is no risk of drowning. Take lunch because there are no kiosks. Fun is guaranteed this beach gives way to steer Beach, nudist beach. Parking is charged per hour Us $3, 12:00 am
