At the far end of Recerieo you will find this beautiful beach. You have to drive by the Protected Jungle Area along beach avenue. Leave the hustle and bustle of Copacabana. It is about one hour drive from Rio so it depends on you.

Grumari Beach is place where you should go to relax a little and to escape from the packed beaches from Ipanema and Copacabana. Although it is not as empty as it used to be, during the week it is still really peaceful

Far away from the center of Rio, it should be more than 1 hour and a half away from Ipanema by car. During the weekends it can get very crowded, specially for parking. Therefore, I suggest going to beach very early, where you can have most of the beach to yourself. Its a beautiful place.

This was a beautiful beach tucked away behind mountains. It's a great location to escape the city but beware of rush hour traffic on your way home. It's horrendous!

We traveled with family who live in the area to Grumari Beach. It is a beautiful spot. Be prepared to bring your own drinks and food although there are restaurants nearby you can go if you don't have any with you. We bargained with the parking lot attendant to get the price down. Try the acai! It was delicious!

It´s a almost a wild beach. Lots of families and surfers. Parking in weekends is very hard, but it´s a fantastic beach!

Crowded of surfers this amazing beach is a bit far of Rio downtown but in the same time is the place where you can enjoy and see a part of wild Rio.... This beach there are no buildings infront of....If you como from the south zone of Rio until Grumari you will enjoy the way cause it pass for many... More
