Prainha, Cabo Frio
(4.6/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
As the beach you will see on numerous Arraial do Cabo postcards, Prainha is a 900 m (0.5 miles) swathe of soft, white sand, lined with kiosks, situated between lush, green hills. Find yourself an empty corner, sit back and relax. Excellent for diving, you will find the calm, bright-aquamarine waters warmer than at neighboring beaches. At the right end of the beach, a small trail leads you to Praia da Graçainha, which at just 15 m (49 ft) long, is exposed only at low tide. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Prainha by using our Cabo Frio tourist route planner.

  • Like the Lighthouse Beach, excursion worth to visit, but also you can reach it from the ground. Blue, transparent, warm and beautiful waters. Recommended visit

  • The sea is very beautiful, but if it's on days around holidays go prepared to March, as it is a very narrow road and that is traffic and depending on you can't go very close to the beach and have to leave the car well before!

  • Beach in reform of the kiosks, is not offering space for visitors, hot and beautiful beach clean.
