Grumari is perhaps the best preserved beach in Rio with an easy access, though it's a bit far from the tradicional touristic areas. The vastitude of clean white sand contrasts beautifully with the emerald green sea, forming a pleasant portrait. Just watch for children, as it is a steep beach and waves hit strongly. I suggest taking some water/softdrinks/snacks with... More

Its a about a 40 min taxi ride (on the weekend without rush hour!) from Rio. The beach there is less crowded than copacapana and has some beautiful nature around it. If you got some spare time definitely worth a trip. I paid 120 Real one way. Might be worth arranging for a return taxi as there won't be any... More

There is no infrastracture around, only a couple of small bars, far away from hip crowds of Ipanema and the tourists of Copacabana. Really nice place surrounded by forests. I liked it a lot. However, it's important to go there early, otherwise you will not find a free spot to park your car.

We met some Brazilians and they took us to Grumari beach. It was pretty far from Copacabana, but it was worth the ride of more than one hour. Grumari is just awesome, a beach that is hardley explored, very quiet on a weeksday. Great waves as well for some body surfing. You should check it out.

To be reached by car. Beautiful bay, nice restaurants with wonderful view. Next to national park. Quiet beaches. Good place to surf.

Just another of Rio's world-class beaches. There is no development here as it's surrounded by parks. But they do have plenty of kiosks where you can get things to eat and drink.

A beautiful beach but it is very far if you're not already staying in Barra da Tijuca or surrounding areas. No buses go there and by taxi it will probably cost a fortune. It can be very difficult to park during the summer, on weekends or holidays. Surfers enjoy this beach, which means the waves tend to be a bit... More

The beach is lovely with nice views, it is more natural and less crowded in comparison with Ipanema or Copacabana but is ridiculously far from the city and getting there can be a nightmare if you don't have a car (it took us almost two hours from Barra da Tijuca by bus and taxi). It is supposed to be a... More

This beach is the best beach close to Rio. We went on a Wednesday because on weekends it can get very crowded. The waves were high and I would not recommend it for bad swimmers because the currents are also strong. There are some surfers and local people at either end of the beach but the middle is near deserted.... More
