An extensive beach in the heart of Macae. There are a few hotels and a few restaurants, but overall the beach is mainly residential and quiet.

I enjoyed my few days walking & sunbathing along the beach... just on time that there were lots of kite surfers & board surfers. We enjoyed watching them playing with the wind/waves every late afternoon... nice bars & restaurants, you can choose from western, asian & local dishes... i believe it's one of the nicest place to visit in RJ.

It is note the bluest ocean, and its not so easy to refresh because the waves break to close to the sand. But anyway, is the place where people get together, and on the shore of this beach the best restaurants in town are located.

This is a beautiful beach with great walkways for those who like to walk and enjoy the spectacular views. There are many restaurants along the beach front that I chose to visit during the daylight hours.

This is a great place to walk on the beach, and see all the people of Macae hanging out. This is a really hopping place on Friday and Saturday nights. Many restaurants can also be found to complete your beach visit. You cannot go wrong visit Cavalelros Beach. Just a note of caution, parking can be hard to find.

Plenty of wind to kite surf, sun enough for those that want to lay by the waves. Usually there are night volleyball or soccer trainings and plenty of people biking, skateboarding, roller blading, surfing...etc. The water is a bit rough and color is mostly grey.

Cavaleiros is my favorite beach for kite surfing although there some good waves for body boards. Be aware that on summer time it gets totally packed, but it is still fine for a walk, a swimming time and getting some acai to watch the beach.

Nice beach for a stroll or a swim when the weather is good. Probably the busiest beach in Macae and made all the better by the reasonably new Boardwalk. Lots of coconut vendors and drink stands along the beach too.

I recommend a walk. People are very simple and very calm too. The beach is clean and have some waves, but very easy.
