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!

Beautiful beaches! The water is calm and good for children. We stayed a couple of days and we really enjoyed. The only disadvantage is that garbage is everywhere as there are no bins to put it. But to be fair, it was carnaval season and...More

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.

Good place for water sports, surf and kite surf when conditions allow. Crowded during January and holidays. Clean, pristine water and white sand. Great for walking bare footed as well.
