Mild waves for smaller kids, excellent food cooked on the beach for you along with drinks. You can walk along the beach to another larger beach nearby, or walk to the right and collect shells at the point. Beautiful beach

This beach is very beatiful, sea water is blue, not deep at your first steps waht make this place suitable for kids play. The price os food is good for extragers, mainly if you came from euro or dólar currency country. At sunny weekends or holidays the things become worse, because many people came to fun time, and make that... More

I really need to go back to this beach. The water is very very tranquil and and super clear. Apparently the water is also extremely salty which is why I was able to float so easily. Definitely worth the visit!

A lonely (in the off season), windy, expanse of soft white sand, Suoeste is a piece of paradise. We have seen turtles, golfinhos or dolphins, penguins (unfortunately once we found a dead one covered with black oil), and of course, crabs and different birds. At the very end towards Pontal, the fishermen bring in the boats rolling them on tree... More

Beautiful waters and white sands. Conchas is well away from the town but worth going to. Of all the beaches in the area of Cabo Frio, Araial do Cabo and Pero, Conchas is my favorite. Water is chilly but you will not notice the temp after swimming for a bit. Conchas is a smaller beach and many people do visit.... More

This is a wonderful beach, if you think to swim, this is a perfect beach. Absolutely clean and unpoluted water. It is located in a reserve and can be reached by car. There are also small restaurants where you can have delicious sea food.

Praia Conchas is a protected bay, so great for kids and anyone who does not want to fight the ocean waves. The water is chilly but refreshing. You can hike up the hill and get great views of the coastline. There is some decent snorkeling at the point. Lots of restaurants which will serve you on the beach. During peak... More

The road to Conchas is tough since the terrain is kind of rough. Better go during week days to avoid street vendors and problems to park your car. Once there walk to the seashore and go left to another beach called Pero.

A calm place, with clear and an amazingly blue water. But the very best is the right corner of this beach, a rocky hill, an the access to awesome views as well as the unforgetable and hardcore jumping point. The sands full of shells are something really special as well. One of the most beautiful beaches we've ever known,
