Dunas Beach, Cabo Frio

(4.3/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Dunas Beach and other attractions to your Cabo Frio trip itinerary using our Cabo Frio holiday planner.

  • It is a beautiful beach, clean and very cozy. Note mi!!! I just thought a little difficult access, nothing else to get in the way of the walk.

  • A beautiful beach. But full of danger. Was me and two people inside the sea and even then the water beat down on our knees, was when to take a step fell in a ditch, right on the edge of the beach and drown. We were rescued by bathers. The day it happened there was no lifeguard and or banners stating the dangers. Watch.

  • The praia das Dunas is wonderful. But it's good to be very careful when entering the sea. Full of holes. Me and 2 people who were with me, we drown. The water was below our knee and giving only a step, fall into a huge ditch, so our drowning. We were rescued by bathers. The day it happened there was no lifeguard and or banners stating the danger from the beach.
