“abulous if you want to be away from crowds and in contact with nature”
Review of Praia das Conchas

Praia das Conchas

Reviewed 28 August 2014

A lonely (in the off season), windy, expanse of soft white sand, Suoeste is a piece of paradise. We have seen turtles, golfinhos or dolphins, penguins (unfortunately once we found a dead one covered with black oil), and of course, crabs and different birds. At the very end towards Pontal, the fishermen bring in the boats rolling them on tree trunks. I´m told that if you help they will share some of their catch. The waves are pretty strong and the water is somewhat cold but that is not an obstacle for those coming from colder climates. There are a couple of pousadas, but mostly it is residential and fabulous if you want to be away from crowds and in contact with nature.

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.

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!!

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.

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!
