Originally named Santa Helena de Cabo Frio (“Cape Cold”) when it was founded by the Portuguese c. 1615, the port owes its name to the chilly submarine currents feeding into the coastal waters from the Antarctic. As a tourist destination, the port is certainly one of the best cruise packages you’re likely to find. Next to a wealth of local history and places of archaeological interest, Cabo Frio is also home to nine of Brazil’s finest beaches, of which the seemingly endless Forte Beach, along with its ancient defensive fort, is probably the best known. Before you hit the beach, don’t forget to visit Gamboa Street, the “beachwear nirvana”, and also be sure to try the local speciality, the delicious and much-celebrated shrimp pasta.

Round off your luxury cruise by checking out our excellent excursion packages for the best deals to local places of interest and the most sumptuous beaches.
