Pecado Beach, Macae
(4.2/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
The water at Pecado Beach favors surfers and bodyboarders, but you can also choose to dive or fish in the calmer sections along the shore. Walk to the end of this "Beach of Sin" at sunset and enjoy a drink and a snack at a well-stocked bar with live music and Samba dancing. From here you can use bicycle and pedestrian paths to get to the bigger Beach of the Knights, at the end of which the bottom of the Satana archipelago comes into unobstructed view in the crystal clear air. Kiosks located along the coast sell coconut water, a popular local beverage. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Macae holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Pecado Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • One of the most beautiful places of Macaé, is definitely a very nice beach and a beautiful environment for a walk with the family. Has some kiosks (with the price very reasonable) but "it's okay". All day you find people walking along the edge.

  • for the surfer that's point, and also very nice to take a walk, only if u is counting on spending the day take to eat because the kiosks (when open) has a pretty steep price, was the place that made the coconut water more expensive of my life.

  • Orla has been more well-treated. Some dangerous stretches for lack of lighting and policing. Beware of timetables.
