Photographer's Note

The Lighthouse beach (Praia do Farol) is the pride of Arraial do Cabo and is considered the most perfect beache in Brazil.

The beach has 5 km of soft white sand, huge dunes, green area and the a wonderful sea with attention to the blue Caribbean color and transparency for the dives.

But do not expect to spend the day here, with area controlled by the Navy, the maximum time to stay there is 1 hour and access is only by authorized boats.

The boat travel from Angels Beach seaport to the Farol Beach takes 40 minutes.

The name is because the beach is placed in Lighthouse Island that have a old lighthouse dating from 1833 that not work anymore. Visitation to the Lighthouse needs a Navy authorization.
