Praia das Conchas, Cabo Frio

(4.4/5 based on 1,700+ 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.

  • Diving, stand up paddle, fishing ... Good for the whole family, surrounded by the nature of the parque estadual da Costa del Sol becomes a beach paradise. Away from the confusion ~ ies of Praia do Forte and the city. Where to stay the will is required. On top of everything is still one of the best places to eat, seafood and drinks on the beach.

  • Shell Beach is a magnificent location. Is in the city of Cabo Frio and buzios. Next to the praia do Peró, You can take advantage of both. The possibilities on the beach are wide and with great price. Parking lot, at least in high season: stop on the street, there are parking attendants who charge ten real to your car stay on the street. Parking lots range from 15 to 30 reais. It is worth climbing the rocks nearby. The view and the pictures are amazing. Ice water, but beautiful, imagine a fantastic view, a beach of clear water and clear, with very few or almost no wave. Also ideal for children.
