Prainha Beach, Arraial do Cabo

3.7
#5 of 7 in Beaches in Arraial do Cabo
A popular surf spot, Prainha Beach is also an ideal spot for views. It’s narrow strip of sand divides the city from the Atlantic with a Pedra Branca Massif looming in the background. This is where beautiful bodies, good food, and cold beer abound. You can enjoy an ice-cold brew and watch surfers ride the waves into the beach, then take a cool dip in the Atlantic and enjoy a pork sandwich with your bare feet nestled in the sand.

    I thought poorly cared for, too much garbage, the sea looks clean, but it was cold and didn't go in. Need to improve the infrastructure too.

    I found beautiful beach, never having been in Camp, I found the sea calmer, more hot water loved. Be with my daughters was very good I hope I can come back more often.

    One of the most beautiful beaches in the region of the Lakes, must-visit for those who love nature primarily.
