we loved it: the beach is extensive, very clean water, with nice waves. Maybe a little cold but I like that .. the city is quiet, there're restaurants, bars, supermarkets. It is ideal to go with children.

Definitely the best beach in Cabo Frio. The sand is white, there are plenty of good vendors in the area, and the ocean is cool and refreshing. There is also a historical fort that has been there for hundreds of years. You are permitted to...More

Beautiful white sand beach but incredible crowded. I went on holidays and all Río de Janeiro people were there too. Hard to see the beach due to the chairs and stuff on the beach for tourist!

Jam packed during high season. Too many people to even enjoy yourself. I wound up leaving after 30 minutes.

This is a great beach! Sand is white, thin and clean. The water is very transparent with a emerald green colour. You will find parking spaces along the beach and plenty of places to eat. Must go if your in town!

It wasn't my best beach in Região dos Lagos - RJ, but it was a nice experience. If you don't have much days to spend in this region, you would better choice some places first.

Unless you like cold water... it isn't a good place to stay. It's a beautiful place but there is strong wind and verrryyy cold water. The fortification isn't well conserved and there isn't good explanations our local guides.

This is a very beautiful but crowded beach in the region. Despite the high number of people the beach is well kept and is clean. You can eat all you can imagine, making it the most wide offer of food of all the beaches I've...More
