Prainha, Cabo Frio

4.7
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. Put Prainha into our Cabo Frio itinerary builder site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I enjoyed the beach in General, the water is quiet, scared that the day we went was relatively dirty!

  • beautiful beach with green waters and calm sea. Ideal for snorkeling and see the fish. Although it has little sand is very cute and quaint. With several options to eat on the beach. Recommended!

  • A paradise on Earth. Located at the top of Arraial do Cabo, boasts easy access and close to parking lots that cost 20.00 per day. You can invlusove out with the car and then back again without prevusar pay again. Crystal clear water and with pleasant temperature. The tide sovre too fast and take much of the strip of sand then a holiday or day of busy people tend to be very bonded to each other with their guard. But still worth it.
