“Huge, beautiful, almost empty, but windy beach”
Review of Praia Grande

Reviewed 10 May 2016

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 pleasant if you are with babies or want to eat/ picknick on the beach.
There are also some football fields, umbrellas, chairs, and tables to rent.
I've also seen some nice restaurants directly at the promenade, but I didn't test them Maybe because it was mid of April (autumn) and direct at the ocean the water was quite chilly (19 degrees C), whereas the water on the other beaches of Arraial do Cabo had amazing warm water (22-23 C), as they are in a gulf.

I visited this place just to watch the sunset. It was an amazing scenery. The area is quite windy. An ideal place for surfers I must say.
There are also countless restaurants, shops and bars nearby.

It's a very long beach, great for nice walks any time of the day. The water is cold but with the hot weather you don't really care. The side that is closest to town is where you'll find restaurants, bars and shops. Also at this end of the beach there are vendors from the restaurants providing tables and chairs for a price, as well as service. You can also take your own chair and things to enjoy and relax with the amazing view of the ocean, and go for a swim in it's clear light green waters. I recommend!!
