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.

  • As soon as you enter in Arraial do Cabo, you are welcomed by the Prainha. Visual pretty. Clear water, in shades of green, lots of seashells, but a little dirty. What a pity so much human being unable to find a dump or save his own trash. Beautiful beach!

  • Prainha, with crushed seashells which may disturb a little bare feet, a sea ice muuuuiiitoooo perfect for sunny days. Cloudy days it takes "courage" to get in the water. Amazing blue sea that made me forget the cold water, spiky seashells ... etc. do not have many options of cool bars on edge.
