Prainha Beach, Caraguatatuba
(3.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to visit Prainha Beach during your Caraguatatuba vacation using our convenient Caraguatatuba family vacation planner.

  • Honestly spoken so much in this little beach that I expected more. It's good to be careful, because it's full of pickpockets.
