Cabo Frio

(16,000+ reviews from top 30 attractions)
Beaches Sightseeing Nature
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.

Where to stay in Cabo Frio

The main bulk of Cabo Frio's accommodations lies between Avenida Teixeira e Souza and Praia do Forte. In this area, choose from pousadas (guesthouses), hostels, and small hotels with rooms at budget to mid-range prices. A few luxury options lie along the sand and the water here, with good views of the surrounding landscape. If you're looking to stay a little out of town, stick to the coastal roads running to the north and south. Along them, you'll find some pretty scenic little pousadas, a few hostels, and some secluded rental apartments and villas.
