Praia das Conchas, Cabo Frio

(4.4/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The beach is small, has good atmosphere and numerous kiosks serving snacks and drinks (more than the Peró, nearby Beach). Offer chairs and parasols by consumption.

  • Beach very quiet early by the tomorrow and beautiful sunsets, recommended to spend a day in family itching something and enjoying the waters more temperate (never warm)

  • Shell Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the region of the Lakes, worth checking out, the sea is amazing!
