Prainha Beach, Arraial do Cabo

(3.7/5 based on 1,700+ 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.

  • Amazing Beach! Calm seas, greenish blue water and cold. Who cares about crowded beach should avoid long holidays, because the whole region is full.
