Cruises from Cabo Frio
Cabo Frio (Cold Cape) is a Brazilian municipality in Rio de Janeiro state, founded by the Portuguese in 1615. This name comes from the low temperature of the sea water. This happens because there is a submarine stream coming from the South Pole that emerges near the coast of Cabo Frio. There are nine wonderful beaches in Cabo Frio including: Sao Bento beach; Pero beach with its spectacular dunes and many kiosks selling drinks and snacks; and the best known Forte Beach named after the 16thC Fortress nearby, and has 4km of white sand.
