“Nice Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This is my favorite beach in Arrial Do Cabo. the white soft sands, the clear transparant blue water and the mountain view is just stunning. The water is cold thou, but as soon as you get off from the water and get exposed by the sun you would feel warm

“Fishmen village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

It has great beaches and is more tranquil than Cabo Frio it´s neibourgh town. Prainha is a good place to be with nice kiosks offering fresh sea food at reasonable prices.

“6 STARS, BEST BEACH in BRAZIL”

This beach is always woted amongst top 10 beaches in Brazil.
Apart from the mountain road being poor for cars the last 500 m, it is a clear MUST
Stunningly beautiful

“Paradisiac wild beaches easily reachable.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Amazing beaches and landscape. The only drawback is the relatively cold water, but the sun was shinning and the sea colors were so amazing that we didn´t think twice to experience it!

The most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. You have to go there (but there a lot of people, crowded)
