“UnConchas beach”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Before we went to this beach, we´ve been told it´s full of conchas, but when we got there we saw garbage instead of the conchas.
The only good thing was that we were their alone, so we had the beach for ourselfs. but it was on week day and not in the season, so i really don´t know whats going on there in the summer vacation.

“seclusion with lots of people!”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Beautiful waters and white sands. Conchas is well away from the town but worth going to. Of all the beaches in the area of Cabo Frio, Araial do Cabo and Pero, Conchas is my favorite. Water is chilly but you will not notice the temp after swimming for a bit. Conchas is a smaller beach and many people do visit. For those not on a package it can be a hassle to get to if you do not have transportation. Make a deal with the taxi driver on PRICE and Pick up time before you go. Taxi drivers do honor the pick up schedule so normally no worries about being stranded at the beach. Food and drink is available at the beach as well. Visit! have a great time!!

“Paradise”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

This is a wonderful beach, if you think to swim, this is a perfect beach. Absolutely clean and unpoluted water. It is located in a reserve and can be reached by car. There are also small restaurants where you can have delicious sea food.

“Fun, Protected Bay with services and lots to do”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

Praia Conchas is a protected bay, so great for kids and anyone who does not want to fight the ocean waves. The water is chilly but refreshing. You can hike up the hill and get great views of the coastline. There is some decent snorkeling at the point. Lots of restaurants which will serve you on the beach. During peak season (Carnival) the ENTIRE beach is covered with umbrellas. It's crazy busy, but a fun experience like Costa del Sol (Spain). Off-peak time, this beach is quiet and peaceful. A little harder to get to but a locals' favorite spot!

“Small tourist beach”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

The road to Conchas is tough since the terrain is kind of rough. Better go during week days to avoid street vendors and problems to park your car. Once there walk to the seashore and go left to another beach called Pero.
