Great, beautiful and long beach with white sand. The only bad thing is that there's nothing to do around except enjoying the beach with cold water.

According to historical records, Arraial do Cabo was the probable place on which Americo Vespucci landed in 1503, during the first exploratory journey sent by the Portuguese Crown. In spite of its historical importance no sign of that epic endeavor can be found, except for...More

This is the best beach for waves, and the best for the afternoon/evening sun. The expanse of beach, in depth, is enormous (and in length it goes on forever). It is also well-served by people providing chairs, umbrellas, and beer and snacks,

It is easy to get there, extremely white sand and caribbean water color. The water is a liltle bit cold; You have some restaurants where you can have lunch for 10-15 dollars. If you drive a car, the parking lot is 5 dollars a day.
