This beach isn't too far from the town, you can walk along a short path and then you have a great view overlooking the beach which looks epic. The water is pristine and is lovely for swimming in with the beautiful scenery around you :)

Perfect beach about 3 hours from Rio de Janeiro with public bus. Very clear and calm water, perfect for snorkeling and diving. We saw 2 turtles and so much more!

Best beach within walking distance from Arraial town center. An easy 10 minute trail leads you to an excellent, mostly empty beach (beach will be slightly crowded during high season and holidays). Tips: do go snorkeling on the left side of the beach - amazing diversity of aquatic fauna and flora. Head to the green "kiosque" for best service/food and... More

The sand is lovely and soft and the water is cool and clear but there are some many people who visit that it is difficult to control the amount of garbage and that makes the garbage difficult to ignore. Some beach goers were fishing plastic bags out of the water... More

The Forno beach is one of the really lovely beaches in Arraial do Cabo. It is a bit of a trek to get to (literally) as you need to climb up & down a small hill. The climb is not too demanding and should not take more than 15 to 20 minutes - it is a bit steep in some... More

One of the best beach I've ever seen. The water is so clear and warm. The sand is so white. Loved it and will be back there for sure.
