Not a great beach itself, but home to the perfect little hidden beach bar

Forno Beach runs along the water behind Rua de Pedras and is where the fisherman gut their catch and fish, so the beach itself is pretty much center to a zillion birds all... read more

On top of being a great beach to swim, you can get a peek of the sea turtles that hang in there. I was there for hours, watching them.

If you want to be on your own in a wild-looking, absolutely quiet and clean beach you have to get to Praia do Forno! A 50 meter white sand shoreline is isolated from the open sea by a capricious rock barrier handing the beach quiet and safe. But, if all you want is to relax after a long night in... More

It´s a small beach, The most beautifull and relaxing beach with few people. A natural and wild place to have a relaxing stay.

I read some good reviews about this beach and went there to spend the morning but in reality I couldn't stay more than 2 hours. First of all, there is not infrastructure on this place. My wife needed to go to restroom and didn't have any close to there. There's no restaurant there. We found the sand dirty, beach with... More

My favorite beach in Arraial do Cabo. I recommend going by boat but you can also hike a small mountain to get there, which you'll have an amazing view. Great beach for snorkeling, underwater pictures and you also can have a special lunch at the local restaurant, reached by boat.

This is a beach in arraial do cabo, there is a walk up and down a hill to get there, it might be tiring, but it is totally worth it. It has less wind than the beach next to it since it is protected by mountains.Beautiful snorkel spot too, clear water, you can see your feet even if you are... More

This was just like the beach in my dreams. Beautiful setting in a secluded bay with a gently sloping sandy beach into the sea. There is also a perfect little beach bar serving delicious snacks (pastel de camarones - amazing) and meals - fresh fish delicious. The bar also provides tables and chairs on the beach. There were only a... More

This one is got the its name due to the sand, as it absorbs a lot of the heat. Small and quiet , this one could be called in english , the "oven" beach

Forno Beach runs along the water behind Rua de Pedras and is where the fisherman gut their catch and fish, so the beach itself is pretty much center to a zillion birds all fighting for fish guts (completely entertaining; we got some great vulture and gull photos). However, if you are facing the long dock on Forno Beach and look... More
