Prainha Beach, Arraial do Cabo

(3.8/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
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. By using our Arraial do Cabo trip itinerary builder, you can arrange your visit to Prainha Beach and other attractions in Arraial do Cabo.

  • Very sad to see a beach so beautiful, with an amazing sea, be dropped. People leave garbage, especially near the muitooo kiosks. The kiosks fill the beach with chairs and tables, ruining the beauty of the beach and leaving the beach even smaller, with little room for those who do not want to use the tents, or even for anyone who wants to enjoy the beach. Looks like rim constructions were made anyway. stuck together with each other and coladas on the beach, getting ugly visually, especially on the right (who arrives). Sad, because the beach is beautiful, but with a lot of visual clutter and trash!
