This beach it’s only accessible by boat and the marine controls how many people can enter (around 300), so most of the time you can expect to see a lot of boats in the sea waiting so that their passengers can enter. The beach is...More

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

You can only get there by boat as it's a natural reserve, but don't be a fooled by it. It can get really crowded anyway. There were so many boats, ours could not even stop. Anyway, it's the most beautiful place around Arraial do cabo.

Amazing beach of white snowlike sand is quite busy but beautiful nevertheless, the water is cool but not freezing. Definitely a great place to hang out and relax and not worry about your shape and size
