Pier / Boardwalk Tourist Spot
Itajuru Waterway provides the perfect location for a day or evening stroll taking in the views. Boats of all types line this inlet formed by the sea. If you’re looking for a little more activity, you can rent a kayak or wave runner and have some aquatic fun. Otherwise, enjoy a lovely meal at one of the many restaurants, enjoy a cold beer or caipirinha (Brazil’s national cocktail made with rum, sugar, and lime) at one of the clubs, and visit the craft fair. Stop by the shops known for their bikinis sold at inexpensive prices. Be sure to bring a jacket as the winds make this place a bit chilly.

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.

Along them, you'll find some pretty scenic little pousadas, a few hostels, and some secluded rental apartments and villas.
