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.

  • Paradise... well called Brazilian Caribbean... beautiful turquoise waters... ideal for diving and snorkeling
    View original
  • A small trail and with only a few minutes you can see a beautiful beach and not for sighing and admire. There are several places to take beautiful photos and enjoy nature. So down you may spot turtles in the corner next to the stones. Transparent water and chilled but bearable, it worth taking snorkel or swim goggles.

  • It's pretty good, but nothing compared to the beach of Atalaia. Beautiful view also, calm sea, food options and place well maintained. The trail is exhausting and dangerous at times.. Slide too much. For those who visit, recommend going barefoot or with shoes for slippery slope.
