This was my favourite beach in Arraial do Cabo.You can only get to this beach by boat (average R$ 10 per person). It can get crowded so, you better arrive early and avoid weekends. There are no restaurants or sellers and you also cant bring food. Thensand is bright white and the sea is really blue. You have an amazing voew of fhe mountains , what make the landscape even more beautifil.The water is very cold though. ( in Arraial do Cabo all of the beaches have a really cold water)

This beach is amazing, the beauty is unbelievable. The blue sky, crystalline water and white sand makes you feel your not in this world. It is with no doubt the most beautiful place I've ever seen in the 27 years of my life.

A gorgeous beach accessed by ferry which taken 40 mins but costs €5 return! However if you want to get there quickly take the water taxi it's €6 each way but fast. The crossing is peaceful and we weren't in a hurry but there's lots of water flies and Mosquitos which can be annoying. The advice I will offer. Is this, in summer like July August get there early like 11.30 on the island the lates, if you want to hire the sun loungers and umbrellas which are good and value for money too. The water is crisp and clean and the sand is soft underfoot but can get hot. We ate a fab fish and chicken lunch at a 2 storey restaurant called something de Jaoa. Excellent fish and really good food all round. Prices are so reasonable compared to what we pay in the UK and the setting is superb. A glorious day out for any family, young or old you won't be disappointed! Go and see for yourself, you won't regret it.

This beach is only accessible by boat. There are some trails through the dense bush that lead you up to the highest point of the island. I really recommend this place.

It is an ecological sanctuary conserved by the brazilian Navy, so you cannot take with you any kind of food or beverage. Also, it is not allowed to tourists to remain there more than half an hour. You can only get there by boat and in order to do it you must rent a ride in Praia dos Anjos. The boat owners or operators will offer you good prices and good service. Please, ask about the best option to make the ride, don´t hire the first one that comes to you or the cheaper. At Praia dos Anjos you can ask for some advice from the Secretaria de Turismo da Prefeitura do Arraial do Cabo

You can only entry by boat, I'd recommend taking an early one, for it's a Navy controlled area and has a 300 visitors limit. The water is amazing and everything is very well preserved. Has no vendors in site, so better bring snacks

I have been to many different places in Brazil. I had never seen such a wonderful beach. The combination of white sand, crystal water and rocks is very special. Can't miss it.

It's one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. Crystal clear water, soft white sand beach. You can only get there by boat, and you can stay there for 40 minutes. It's a place protected by the Navy. It's so woth it to go to this little piece of paradise.

This is one of the amazing beaches around here. The water is perfect, not warm but not cold either, and it's very, very clear. I just loved the place.
