Let yourself be seduced by the heavenly beaches of Arraial do Cabo with this trip from Rio. Spend a day in this paradise, where you will also take an entertaining boat ride. How can you resist?

Arraial do Cabo Day Trip Itinerary

On the morning of your tour, we will collect you from the hotel in Rio de Janeiro between 6:30 am and 8:30 am and head east along the coast. Leaving behind the so-called ‘carioca city’ we head into a region of breath-taking landscapes and shorelines.

At around midday, will arrive at Arraial do Cabo, home to what are arguably some of the most beautiful beaches in this iconic South American country. Once there, we will head to one of the docks to board a traditional boat that is waiting to take you on a boat trip that you will never forget.

During the first part of the journey, we will sail on the crystalline waters while the guide tells you all about the local area and what you can see during your visit. We will make stops at up to four beaches where you'll have around 50 minutes to enjoy the paradise locations.

The first two will be at Prainha and Praia do Farol, which has often topped the lists of Brazil’s best beaches.

Then, we will return to the boat which will take us to the Blue Cave and the Fenda de Nossa Senhora, two magical rock formations that will captivate you with their history and their appearance. Continue onwards to Pedra do Gorila and Praia do Forno, two more beaches of pure white sand and wonderful marine life - you might even see marine turtles!

You will also enjoy a delicious buffet-style dinner in a local restaurant At the end of the boat trip, we will return to Arraial do Cabo to catch the bus back to Rio de Janeiro, arriving between 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm.
