Located just 2.5 hours from Rio de Janeiro is the stunning town of Arraial do Cabo. Offering guests incredible beaches, sand dunes, snorkeling, and significantly less tourists than neighboring beaches, Arraial is a must-see on any trip to Brazil. Soak up the sun, go for a swim, enjoy the atmosphere of the small town, and get in touch with the culture of this incredible country.

Admire the view as you head down the stairs to the beautiful beach below.

These stairs might look steep, but what better way to get all your steps in for the day before resting up and catching some sun?

The views aren't the only jaw-dropper this beach has to offer. Check out the beautiful water offering perfect swimming temperatures.

This white-sand beach has plenty of space to spread out away from the crowds.

In addition to beautiful waters, beaches, and vistas, there is also incredible flora and fauna to be found at Arraial do Cabo.

Looking to add some snorkeling into your next trip? An incredible variety of underwater animals and plants can be found just offshore.

Prefer to be on the water instead of in it? Good news because there's plenty of boat tours available from this coastal town.

Hike a trail and get a glimpse of the boats and beaches from above.

What are you waiting for?

estar viva e poder me deparar com isso 💙
