If you are looking for a calm beach to to enjoy your family, your friends and the good waves. This is the place to go, beautiful beach with a good portion of sand to have play. And like Flamengo, you can see a lot of beautiful people around.

Stella Maris beach is nice, but somewhat isolated, with very little to do outside of being at the beach. This beach is good for locals but not too attractive for travelers like myself. The Stella Maris beach is located in a very nice community of condos, apartments and houses.

Absolutely gorgeous beaches. Was even able to do a little snorkeling. I would definitely recommend this beach to friends and return someday.

Nice beach, quiet. Keep in mind there are too many rocks on the beach, where swimming may be dangerous. You need to walk a little to find the right place for swimming

It is a litle far, but it is very nice. You can stay in any of the bars that offer beach umbrella and chairs for a price.

This is a beach outside the city, not far from the airport.

We were a little dissapointed with Stella Maris beach. It took us a good 30/45 min to get there by cab. It wasn't as sheltered as hoped and crowded on either side although you able to find some quiet spots. Not much shade and (compared to Australian beaches) relatively dirty and littered. Water was nice temperature and opportunity to have... More

The beach is very nice and quiet (except for sunday) with several bars where you can sit and relax enjoyning the sun and the breeze from the ocean.
