Quote of the day: Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one's ideas, to take a calculated risk - and to act. Andre Malraux
ARRAIAL - is a beautiful place, full of beaches with blue and green colored waters. Great diving spot, one of the bests in Brazil.
This is Praia do Forno, I made this photo on my last trip to Arraial.
In Arraial you will find dunes, reefs, ecological reserves, conserved Atlantic Forest, six-thousand-year-old sambaquis (hills made an accumulation of shells and other items from pre-historic inhabitants) and one of the most appropriate regions for fishing on the planet.
