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 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.
