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 you have from the trail is already breathtaking. Recommend wearing proper shoes to do the trail that accesses the beach, as you might be unfortunate enough to step on one of the million...  more »
  • Due to sea level this beach has almost no sand stripe left, and to reach it you'll have to go down a long stair and climb some rocks, but in the end you'll see that all effort was totally worth it...  more »

  • To arrive at the brave Beach, must make a 1 mile trail, a little tiring, from the entrance of the Pontal do Atalaia. The tiredness compensates by the incredible panoramic view. The beach, of strong waves, is highly sought after by surfers.
