Praia do Forte, Cabo Frio

4.6
One of the top urban beaches in the country, Praia do Forte features white sand, turquoise sea, and lots of water sports. The long strip of coast invites a barefoot stroll, while the steady waves urge you to go surfing or kitesurfing. A slew of convenient amenities lines the beach, including shops, restaurants, bars, banks, restrooms, and showers. Venture to the early 17th-century fort nearby, which used to protect the city from foreign invaders. Note that the water is colder compared to other Brazilian beaches.

  • The best beach of the lake region trip! The day I went, the seawater was very crystalline and warm, think of a beautiful place and that doesn't make you want to get off the beach? This is the place.

  • Beautiful beach with icy water and very white sands! The waves do not stop us from enjoying the beautiful beach because they do not pull and are not strong. Vale Apena Check!

  • The beach is beautiful, beautiful. With vast space of white sand, an amazing color of the sea, makes you not want to leave. There is a part of the beach that has the kiosks, the more they do not serve the food on the beach, you have to go there to eat. In the part of the dunes there are no kiosks nearby, but they collect requests and lead there. The beach is lovely and is well worth knowing!!!
