Arraial do Cabo
Located on a peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean, the municipality of Arraial do Cabo has become a popular tourist destination because of its pristine beaches and relaxing atmosphere. Nicknamed the "Diving Capital," the area is a go-to place for underwater adventures--partly because of its abundant marine life, and partly because of the high number of shipwrecks that have occcured here since Amerigo Vespucci arrived with the Portuguese navy in 1503. Many wrecks still lie under the sea, ripe for exploration and underwater photography. Back on land, cultural attractions in Arraial do Cabo primarily relate to the maritime heritage and marine diversity of the peninsula, with a set of museums dotted around the small urban area.
