Prainha Beach, Arraial do Cabo

(1,700+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • The beach itself is a spectacle! Just don't take 5 stars due to the kiosks that monopolize the public space. Bathers has almost no where to put your chairs and tents. But still worth it!

  • Central Beach, that the becomes more dirty. The rocks on the right margin is ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving free, full of turtles, cuttlefish and fish. This is the best of the beach, also rents kayaks.
