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 6:50 and 8:20 am and head east. 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 an unforgettable cruise.

During the first part of the journey, we will sail on the crystalline waters, enjoying picture-postcard beaches such as Pontal do Atalaia, Gruta Azul y Fenda de Nossa SenhoraPontal do Atalaia, Gruta Azul y Fenda de Nossa Senhora. Then we'll make a stop at Prainhas do Pontal and Praia do Farol, which has often topped the lists of Brazil’s best beaches - where you can make the most of the peace and tranquillity, or take a dip.

With the boat tour over, you'll enjoy a delicious buffet-style dinner in a local restaurant back in Arraial do Cabo, then finally we'll take the bus back to Rio de Janeiro, arriving around 9 pm.
