The most beautiful beach we went to in Arraial. Recommend going by boat from Praia dos Anjos. We were there on a weekend in January and it was EXTREMELY crowded, like you could barely find a place to even stand, much less sit down. There...More

This beach is awesome and really beautiful, one of the most incredible beach I ever visited! Have in mind that are only allowed 250 cars to enter in the condominium to access the beach (R$ 10,00 per car), so during vacations, this number is reached...More

Took a boat ride there, the water was Crystal clear, nice and clean. Great for kids. Doesn't have lots of options of food, so it's good to bring your own snacks

I liked the clean water, although it was very cold and I couldn't enjoy the beach. The parking is not for free - there is a tax of R$10,00 and the "parking area" is awful! Good place to take beautiful photos.

Not by chance, considered one of the top 5 most beutiful beaches in Brazil. Not easy to get there, though - Praia do Forno is just as beautiful and access is much more simple and fun. Please note that you'll have to pay (20,00 reais)...More

We have seen many beaches this trip in Brazil and this is one of the best. Clean white sand. Blue water. Lots of people and host activity and umbrella and chairs for hire. Avoid the stress of parking and get a 15 min taxi ride...More
