This is the worst beach in Arraial do Cabo. The water is extremely cold ( colder than the others) and it’s really dirty. The locals said that it was because of the New Year’s party, but its dirty is highly disparate from de others. Besides,...More

Gorgeous beach, white and fine sand, but be prepared for the freezing cold water! Totally worth the visit though. Sand can get quite hot so maybe a good idea to wear sandals instead of flip flops.

One of the nicest beaches i have seen in the area. The water was pretty cold but the caipirinhas helped. Amazing sunset

Overall a good beach if you want to play ball or something similar. The water was too cold to stay in for more than ten minutes though.

Very beautiful, long stretch of white sand beach and crystal blue water. Bars/restaurants will serve you right on the sand. Limited parking.

One of the coldest water I've ever been into (so make sure you go when the sun is up and the weather is clear, else you will regret getting in the sea hahahaha)

Praia Grande is a large, beautifull beach, directly towards the ocean. It has very fine white sand, no stones etc and is perfect for sunbathing. Although it was very windy and therefore the sand was blown heavily from towards water which might not be very...More
