“The worst in Arraial do Cabo ”
Review of Praia Grande

Reviewed 24 January 2018 via mobile

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, the price to rent an umbrella and chairs is higher (around R$ 80,00).

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.

The beach looks nice, large and impressive, only two blocks from our pousada. However, we were assalted by very agressive, persistent vendors from the local quiosques, trying to convince you to get in even before reaching the beach. I still can't help thinking that one of them took a suspicious look at my watch... or it may just have been my imagination. Fact is, we gave up the visit.

We visited Praia Grande during the beginning of March. Was not crowded at all. The beach is awesome. White and very fine sand, transparent waters and some waves, makes this beach an excellent spot to visit. Try some of the Kiosks selling fish and seafood on the promenade (big dishes, you will always get portions for 3, from a plate for 2).

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