Introducing Cabo Frio

Sandwiched between sand dunes, lagoons and the sparkling Atlantic, Cabo Frio's naturally gorgeous setting has been seriously stunted by industry and overdevelopment. Still, on weekends and summer holidays its bars and beaches continue to draw throngs of happy-go-lucky Brazilians, whose merrymaking spirit is the city’s strongest attraction.

The twin focal points for tourists are Praia do Forte, a stunning stretch of white sand and green waters named after the fort at its eastern end, and the restaurant-fringed Canal do Itajuru, which links nearby Lagoa de Araruama to the Atlantic Ocean.
