Praia das Conchas, Cabo Frio

4.4
#2 of 59 in Things to do in Cabo Frio
Beach Nature / Park
Praia das Conchas's main attraction is a protected bay that provides safety to swimmers who are using their strokes in the ocean for the first time. Hike up the nearby hill for a view of the coastline that will make a picture-perfect postcard image. Don’t forget your snorkeling gear because the still bay waters make for nice underwater viewing. The beach itself fills up during Carnival season, so this is a good time to visit if you like the party scene, but off-season is quiet and popular with the locals. A visit to Praia das Conchas represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cabo Frio trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • I really enjoyed it. I was in front of the yellow kiosk on site. There is no charge for tables and chairs. The sea is relatively calm.

  • Great to go with child because I don't usually have strong waves. It's pretty easy. But to get there you need to go through a stretch of land. However, it is worth!

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.
