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.

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

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
