The beach is a short drive outside of the main bustle of Rio and is great. it is unspoiled and has an amazing vista. easy to get to. Went during the week so it was not at all crowded. Keep going towards the end up a hill and you'll end up at a great Restaurant with an amazing view too.

Really nice beach, nice Kiosque one of the few still wild beaches in Rio. Only acessable by car. Quiet beach, but still has 4 to 6 places to eat. Bring your beach chairs, umbrella and towels. Really nice beach

Need a car or motorbike to reach this large beach. Usually bigger waves and stronger currents so not for kids or inexperienced ocean swimmers. Lovely to sit on the beach though, much quieter and cleaner than Rio's more famous beaches. Sand is very coarse, like small pieces of shell, and sticks to your skin like crazy.

This is a very nice beach, a little off the beaten path but if you have time and a car worth going. There are not as good options for food in the kiosks but still a very clean and nice beach

very cool place to go, specially during the week. One of the most beautiful beaches in Rio with few people around and a amazing resting reserve behind the beach. But you can go by car only.

Best beach in Rio, just a bit crowded on a hot sunny sunday, so try to be there before 11am because parking gets difficult after that sometimes.

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.
