We walked from the dunnes over to the fort for a nosey. Excellent little panoramic view from the fort and its little soldier tower was nice. We took a wee photo from there too. A little chamber up the rocky path in havianas can be tricky when wet but manageable. We visited in August which can be a bit cold... More

One of the best beaches in the Região dos Lagos. If you love white, fine sand, you'll love this beach!

Water is cold and the air is too, this time of year... normally a good place to take the family or go it alone. The beach is in a basically protected Bay so there are normally no huge ocean waves to bother the bather. There are times when there are crazy storms which will bring the really large Ocean waves,...

Cabo Frio has some amazing beaches, but this is 'the beach to be' when you are in Cabo Frio. It's been continuously developed, it's lovely to walk by the promenade and there are many restaurants to go to. The beach is a white sand beach, there's a fort that's nice to visit, the water - oh the water - it's... More

Every time I go to Brazil I make sure I set at least a week aside to spend in Cabo Frio. You experience Rio de Janeiro with out the worry of being in a violent area. The locals are nice, there's always something to do. The night markets is my favorite, you explore the area while eating authentic Brazilian food... More

Very clean with lots of space so even on crowded days you're not on top of each other. Lots of activity on the beach with great service from the beach barracas.

Miles and miles of extremely white sand, clear waters...Could be very crowdy in New year, and Carnival time, so avoid both if you like a morer quiet scene. Beach is lighted at night so people can walk or play sports. Very nice seashore walking area with bars, parked areas, a crafts fair, Museum of Surf. Dont forget to visit the... More

This is a review that I really wanted to post. We recently spent a week in Cabo Frio with our 3 young kids and friends at their beachfront place at the Forte Beach. We were spoiled! We had a great panoramic view of the beach which made it a little more special. Day and night, the beach is fully illuminated... More

The beach and it's surroundings are great for a getaway from Rio's hustle and bustle. There are many restaurants near the beach and the food is very good. The waters range from light blue to dark blue and are truly amazing. This is my third time here and I will be back for more.
