For first-time sailors, the three main stops that cannot be missed on the itinerary are: Prainhas do Pontal do Atalaia, a postcard of Cable camp, where the famous and long staircase that gives access to the sand is located. The spectacular look justifies being so coveted and the subject of many photos.

You will need a lot of patience, as finding this empty spot is almost impossible, but don't waste time on your cell phone, enjoy what this paradise has to offer. An important tip is that access to the beach has a daily limit of people, so arriving early is the best way to ensure a successful tour. The beach has a good structure of chairs and restaurants and a calm sea, with very white sand, which contrasts with its turquoise blue sea.

The second mandatory stop is Praia do Farol, classified by INPE (National Institute for Space Research) as one of the most perfect in Brazil, due to its crystalline waters and the beauty of the landscape, which is surreal. It is a protection area of the Brazil's navy, therefore its access is restricted and it is possible to arrive only by boat, with authorized tours, only 250 people can disembark there daily and stay only 45 minutes. Still, the tour is worth it, as it is also historically important, as it keeps records of the city of Arraial do Cabo.

To finish this trio of tourist attractions, it is worth visiting Praia do Forno, which is another paradise attraction that can be accessed by a 20-minute trail, which starts at Praia dos Anjos or by boat, found in the same place. The ascent on foot to the place is rewarding, as at the end there is a viewpoint where you can see the entire coastline and the sea, which is surprising with its so green hue. Despite a small beach, only 500 meters long, its view is incredible and at one end there are still bars and food carts, however, there are also more isolated areas for those looking for tranquility. 

the attractions of Cable camp do not stop there, it is also a great destination for those who like to see life in the sea up close, which is why it is considered the Brazilian diving capital. Its transparent and deep waters are the ideal setting to see fish, turtles and other animals with excellent visibility. In addition, be sure to also take a boat trip, to get to know all the beauty of its waters even more closely.

If you have time, take the opportunity to visit Praia Grande, whose open sea waves attract surfers. Its strip of sand is surprisingly large: 40km starting at Cable camp and continue to the municipality of Saquarema. However, it is at the beginning of the beach, which is one of the youngest places in the city and an unforgettable sunset, to close the trip with the beautiful contemplation of nature.
