Have you ever been somewhere you instantly know you can feel happy forever? This is what Arraial do Cabo feels like to us. This Brazilian hidden gem is the place to head to if you want to experience the country like you have never seen it before.
One of the most stunning itineraries on the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Arrial de Cabo is close to the city, yet just far away enough to feel the tropical vibe of the South American country. Pay a visit to the Lighthouse Island and the Blue Grotto, which are considered a tourist attraction. Positioned in the as Região dos Lagos region, the calm, warm waters of the lakes and the sea invite locals and visitors to take a boat trip and enjoy a peaceful day sailing, surfing and swimming. If you have enough time to book a boat trip, it will most likely take you to places such as Forno beach, Pedra Gorila (Gorilla Rock), Ilha do Farol (Lighthouse Island) and Fenda de Nossa Senhora (Crevice of Our Lady of Assumption) so you won't miss a thing.
Often referred to as the Brazilian Caribbean, the coastal spot is home to one of the most stunning landscapes in the country. Grab your instant camera and head over there with friends for a once-in-a-lifetime experience of coastal Brazil.
