Great place, too crowded

Forno beach is really beautiful, but on high season gets packed with an awful crowd. Too much for me, I prefer quiet beaches.

Praia do Forno is my number one favorite beach in Arraial do Cabo. With its crystal clear blue waters and glittering white sand. It's simply amazing and good for relaxation. Just can't get enough of this place.

Gorgeous beach,white sand, blue and clear water. Just amazing! The only bad part is that you can't spend all day there since they only allow a certain number of people and through a boat tour

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!
