Most people just get to the well-know touristic beaches (Copacabana, Ipanema, ...) but if you have a car don't miss going to Prainha and Grumari ... this is for locals, surfers and so on and they are real beaches. Well worth a trip to there.

We stayed in Copacabana a great beach but Grumari was the most beautiful, we had a hire car but you can get the BRT and a bus to it. Great for surfing and body boarding.

The beach is, depending on the traffic, at least an hour drive from Copacabana. The hours may be several hours and to spend that time in a car, with the traffic culture that exists, is not that you thought as the most pleasant. On top of the mountain there is a very good restaurant, Restaurante Point de Grumari, but it... More

This beach is very far from downtown and Copacabana, but its one of the best in town. Drive past Prainha to get there. Also good surf!

You will need a car to get here, but if you're in Rio and looking for a beautiful stretch of quiet beach not too far from where you're staying, this is the place. As a bonus, the water is a bit cleaner than Ipanema/Copacabana etc. There is also a great rustic seafood restaurant at the beginning of the beach.

I was expecting it to be more crowdy due to the world cup, a group of people I met at the hotel invited me on a scheduled drive and I gladly joined, this is my best day beach so far, very secluded.. quite and definitely worth the drive.

next to Prainha beach, and even further away from the bustling south zone beaches, Grumari is a very large beach that has great waves for surfers. the water in the furthest west part is more tranquil and so there it is better for families with children. I had one of the best Açaí's ever at Grumari...

it is amazing to be in such wild beach just so close to main hectic beaches of Rio. on the way, stop by Prainha, have some coconut water, go to Grumari, and finish the day eating at Restaurante do Bira… it will definitely be one of the best days of your trip to Rio.

This is by far one of the most beautiful beaches in Rio. If you are looking for crowded and noise places like Copacabana, you might not like this. This secluded beach is quite far from the city (you definitely need a car to get here) and maybe a local to guide you and not to get lost. Secluded, beautiful, high... More
