Don't spend any time at this beach hanging out, as the sand is covered in trash and the water is polluted and dirty. You should only go here to catch the boat tours to the other, nicer beaches in Arraial.

Good location. Nice and quite without the crowds. A bit too close to the harbor but the sand is white and the water is very clean and blue... I recommend to visit with small children.

the best part of this beach is that you can hire a boat to take you around. there are many fishing boats and a fish market where they bring their catch. close to this beach there is a path to Forno beach which is amazing.

We loved this quiet calm beach. It is much less crowded than other beaches on Arraial do Cabo, but still well-served by beach chair and umbrella people. The view of the surrounding hills, both left and right, is spectacular. Facing directly east, it is the...More

This beach is more for fishermen and tours. It is full of boats and tour companies who take tourists to other areas of the Arraial do Cabo. Nothing to see here of real worth.
