Japones Island, Cabo Frio

#1 of 11 in Nature in Cabo Frio
Known to be a quiet nook in a busy area, Japones Island is a small resort with thatched food kiosks where you can sit down for a peaceful meal. Fresh fish is caught and served up in the traditional style here. The water along the beach is quite shallow and calm, making it a popular spot for families with little children. Farther up the coast you can find deeper waters for swimming and scuba diving. Boats can also be rented for sightseeing along the Itajuru Channel. Nearby trails attract ecotourists and casual hikers, as well as locals picnicking in secluded spots along the shore. When the tide is low, you can take a walk straight across the channel, from the island to the mainland.

  • Great place to relax. Quiet and clean waters (depends on the Moon). Access by car is bad because the dirt road is not good and there was a lot of mud (the day I went). But the location compensates. Has a mild smell that seems to drain, I do not know if it is.

  • I went to sea taxi, leaving the end of av,. Ahmed. Paid 53 ha.and 25 ha beside per person (round trip) when I went was a little cloudy. The island is beautiful, but a part of it was smelling bad, had a tbm dog walking in the sand. I saw some people crossing on foot from the beach access road of Shells and tbm had a boat making the crossing. It's very shallow, you can, not even water. The bad news is there's a lot of broken shells and some gravels of tree and hurt a little foot. Worth knowing, I believe in weekend or vacation becomes too full. I went on weekday and was bustling. The sea taxi not accept card payment.
