Dunas Beach, Cabo Frio

Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Is a continuation of the Praia do Forte, as the name implies, has beautiful dunes and good places to swim.

  • Even at high seasons this beach is livable.. Bring chairs and tents, because the kiosks charge expensive in summer the price isn't the best coconut too, I recommend taking a beer and something to eat.

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.
