Dunas Beach, Cabo Frio

4.3
Explore the sand-covered dunes at Dunas Beach, which has a 9 km (5.6 mi) long shore. The water is very cold and choppy making it more ideal for surfing than for swimming. The sand and the dunes provide a nice area to have fun with the family or to relax in the sun. The infrastructure is not abundant so consider bringing your own drinks and snacks. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Cabo Frio trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • This beach is very reminiscent of the dunes of Natal, is a great extension of thin white sand. Great for taking pictures in the middle of the dunes. One of the things that's not cool, it's the kiosk that offers chairs and parasols are very expensive, they put minimum amount to spend.

  • the edge away from the Boardwalk, good for stay on account there is nothing around, take your own water and snacks

  • It's nice for those who likes to catch some waves, gusty, but the water is very clear and white sand, but it's a little deserted, most days, maybe the weekend and the holidays get crowded, were not that, do not have sales places around If it is to enjoy the day you have to take a lot

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.
