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.

  • Beautiful beach with sand white, thin and super hot to walk; water in bright colours of blue and green. Stay right in the Centre and have several options of kiosks. For those who practice sports like windsurf, kitesurf and surf this is a good choice for beautiful pictures without facing a very stormy sea.
