Prainha Beach, Caraguatatuba

3.5
#5 of 18 in Parks in Caraguatatuba
Prainha Beach offers calms seas and warm sands in a peaceful setting far from the tourist crowds. Shallow waters and small waves breaking against the sand make this beach a favorite of families with small children, who can easily learn how to swim here. You can also explore a short but fairly steep trail, leading up to a series of overhanging cliffs, which offer a sweeping view of the sea and the beach immediately below. Several food kiosks operate right on the sand, but you can also find a few restaurants not far from the beach. Also nearby is a small square with a water fountain and plenty of parking space for beachgoers arriving early in the day.

  • Small beach that must be very beautiful in the off season ... when I went in December, was filled with space in the sand. If you like, there is a trail to the rock of the alligator. There are a few places to Park (blue zone), but as they are not enough, you can leave your car on the street (subject to parking attendants). There is a boulevard with food and beverage kiosks, and a small square with a fountain of ground that was not working.

Where to stay in Caraguatatuba

As you'd expect, the beach is the place to stay in Caraguatatuba. A multitude of hotels and beach resorts line the curved coastline, most of them with swimming pools and a range of other creature comforts. Look along Avenue Dr Artur Costa Filho for easiest access to the city's largest and most iconic beach. For budget accommodations, look inland to the neighborhood of Prainha. On its narrow streets you'll find an abundance of small guesthouses offering competitive prices, and they're still only a few minutes' walk from a palm-lined beach.
