Forno Beach, Arraial do Cabo

Bring your snorkel gear to Forno Beach, a hidden gem that attracts divers with its calm warm waters and abundance of coral. Nestled in a secluded cove, the beach features a bright blue sea and a short, narrow strip of white sand that fills up quickly during peak season. Hop on a boat and visit the nearby floating restaurant, serving a good selection of fresh seafood. Rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard, or simply recline in a deckchair and bathe in the sun. Forno Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Arraial do Cabo Edition.

  • Beautiful beach with crystal clear waters. It has almost No waves. Beautiful for swimming with turtles!!!! Don't forget to wear your glasses! You can go by taxi or by the Morro that does not take more than 15 minutes.

  • Beautiful beach! Not too good for children because of the many stones in the sea, and someone could get hurt. Clean water, quiet place

  • No doubt the prettiest beach in Arraial do Cabo. It is very small and calm waters. It is accessed by a steep path that is born near the main pier. It is advisable to go with a suitable footwear to avoid tripping or injuries to the feet. It has very simple huts that offer parasols, lounge chairs, drinks and lunch dishes, but close very early for my taste (16.00).
