Praia do Forno

It is quite bizarre how different Praia do Forno is from neighbouring Praia dos Anjos. The latter is backed by the large town of Arraial do Cabo and you can barely move for boats. Yet just a couple of hundred metres hike over the headland to the north and you will feel like you have landed on a tropical island.

As you crest the headland you will get you first glimpse of a small horseshoe-shaped bay book-ended by lush green headlands. The sand here is white and the sea a clear aquamarine. This is truly a place of natural beauty and feels like a secluded slice of paradise.

Despite this illusion of being a million miles from civilisation you will find plenty of facilities at Praia do Forno. There are a number of kiosks serving a range of food, not to mention a floating restaurant that specializes in seafood.
