The complete proposed itinerary for Arraial do Cabo goes on the main local spots, which are:
  • Prainhas: called by the locals “As Prainhas” and also known as “Praia da Escadaria” (Escadaria’s Beach), this beach has one of the best places for a picture: stairs that come from the top of the hill, all the way to the sand. The access is made by boat which departures from Dos Anjos Beach or by car, passing through the Pontal do Atalaia Hill. At peak season, the access is limited to a maximum amount of vehicles at the beach.

The access is made passing by a very steep trail of approximately 20 minutes, which certainly worths the effort. Older people or kids should choose the access by boat.
  • ✓Blue Grotto: pointed to the sea, accessible only by boat, with a 3 meters wide and 15 meters tall opening, the Grotto is no doubts one of the main attractions of the trip. Its name is given by the fact that when the sunlight reaches the water, it reflects it into the rock walls, turning them into a beautiful blueish color.
