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.

    My husband and I went by boat. I found the beach nice but nothing as wonderful as heard before. The prainhas of the pontal do atalaia are prettier.

    the beach that I liked most of camp, this is the last stop of the boats, well known for your famous staircase, but when you go by boat is not possible to have access to it. the sea is calm, clear water and without a lot of waves, not to mention the white sand

    It is reached on foot (10 min from downtown) across a hill. It's rather steep so I suggest comfortable shoes. Only the view of the beach from atop compensates for the effort. I was breathless by the beauty of the landscape. You can rent chairs, umbrellas and there are bars to buy food and drink. Also street vendors that offer from queijo roasted until drinks! PIN, don't miss this place! It is best to go early, since the Sun is soon hidden behind the nose (around the 16.30 p.m. in winter)
