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.

  • On nature, Praia do Forte remains one of the most beautiful in Brazil, but on what depends on man, the story is quite different. The Water Square, which was once a source of pride, is now completely abandoned. Unfortunate.
