Cabo Frio

Beaches · Islands · Landmarks
Founded way back in 1615, Cabo Frio represents the seventh-oldest city in Brazil. Despite rapid development in recent years, some colonial-era buildings still remain, with whitewashed chapels and ranch houses neatly maintained and occupying scenic positions on the hills overlooking the coast. However, tourism in Cabo Frio tends to focus on the beaches and entertainment sector. Busy white sand beaches with many commercial enterprises are the locus of activity both day and night--although a walk along the coast will reveal that they eventually peter out into secluded areas of dunes. Make Cabo Frio central to your Brazil travel plans using our Brazil road trip planning tool.
