Forte Beach, Cabo Frio

4.6
One of the top urban beaches in the country, Forte Beach features white sand, turquoise sea, and lots of water sports. The long strip of coast invites a barefoot stroll, while the steady waves urge you to go surfing or kitesurfing. A slew of convenient amenities lines the beach, including shops, restaurants, bars, banks, restrooms, and showers. Venture to the early 17th-century fort nearby, which used to protect the city from foreign invaders. Note that the water is colder compared to other Brazilian beaches.

  • Presents a good infrastructure, with rentals of chairs and umbrellas all over the beach. The beach has a good strip of sand and a great Boardwalk. The sand is the fine white anymore I've ever seen and the sea and sky blue.

  • Very nice beach, off season! Calm, calm sea, white sand, variety. I usually stay in the "Tent of Moysés" where can I find good service, nice price and a good location on the beach.

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.
