Forte Beach, which is the main beach in Cabo Frio and stretches the entire length of downtown. Gorgeous, soft white sand and azure waters. There is always a breeze in CF, which is so nice during the hot months. Pick a kiosk and rent your chair/umbrella and have waiters feeding you ice cold beer or other drinks as well as food if you are hungry. The far end of the beach (by the fort) is less crowded. Ipanema and Copacobana don't even come close to Forte Beach!

After a day taking a boat to the stunning islands of Arrial do Cabo I thought I had seen the most stunning gorgeous clean watered sun baked beaches. Then later in the day about half four our driver announced that we were stopping at a beach.
I was hot tired and had an hour drive back and stopping for a beach!

Welcome to fort beach Cabo Frio! WOW! jaw dropping beauty,white clean soft sand which was a delight to walk on. 7km long of pure delight for your eyes .GO if you love a beach.Has many party's in the evening and is huge.Runs around like a massive bay and the locals tell you it's actually 10 km which takes in Arrial do cabo which you can see way into the distance.

I can honestly tell you for me this was a magic end to a fabulous day?

The problem here is the crowd. It is a beautiful place overlooked by an old Portuguese fort. I used to enjoy it a lot during my childhood but not anymore. It is good for a visit, to take photos and get away to find places where you really can sit down and relax

A paradisiac beach with amazing sea colors (green and blues), a pure white sand, just in front of a very busy oceandrive with many great buildings and its lively street scene. At night it is still very interesting with many goo enterteinment and food options.
