Perfect place to take a nice picture of Pão de Açúcar (Sugar Loaf). If you like running or going for a walk, this a good place. It is closed to cars for about 4 miles on Sundays mornings.

The place is known to be unsafe, specially at late hours, but I have seen some police cars around, reducing the anxiety of the visitors. The Pao de Açucar is very well seen during walking, running or biking. Perfect choice for a sunny day.

Great place to walk, jog or bike. Beautiful view of the Bay, including Pão de Açucar hill. Do not bring your valuables unless necessary. One phone to take some pictures should be fine.

The aterro (a reclaimed area, as the word says) was created by the great brazilian modernist architects of the 1950's. It is very nicely draws, but it fell into a bit of a state of abandonment during the past 30 years of economical crisis. Also known for some robberies after dark.

After spending 2 months living in Ipanema, I moved to Laranjeiras to stay with my friends. I had driven past the Botafogo beach and also ate at Porcao Rios. So I had seen the Aterro do Flamengo park. This morning I decide to go for a run. Excellent decision. The weather was perfect and it was such a pleasant experience.... More

Aterro do Flamengo is beautiful but if you go for a bike ride or a walk make sure to be where the crowds are, as it can be quite a dangerous place.

Copacabana and Ipanema are the places to go for swimming in the ocean, but Flamengo is the place to come for a lovely stroll, run, or bike ride (there is a boardwalk for strolling, bike lanes and running lanes). Also come here to have a picnic with your family, sun on the beach, get a massage in one of the... More

This is an excellent spot for you to relax, take a walk or run! There's a lot of space with green everywhere... wonderful view of the beach and you can rent a bike and explore the surroundings at ease. From there you can take a walk down to Botafogo beach with the Sugar Loaf mountain right by your side!

Nice long strip of park and beach with almost every summer sport imaginable, a good long walk from Copa to the Center, with may places to stop, eat, drink and take photos...
