This was a very pretty beach that was actively enjoyed by locals. No English spoken here; and we spoke no Portuguese. This did not pose a problem since a gracious smile and polite behavior was always rewarded with a warm response. Unless you want to be among the pretty hot hotties at the beaches in Leblon and Impanema, this is... More

A Brazilian friend took us to this beach, on the outskirts of Rio. It was an 1,5 hour ride from Copacabana, but it was well worth it. The beach is part of a reserve, very quiet and clean. Great place for families as well to spend a day. Do bring some food and drinks and lot's of sun block

It's a lovely drive through the Florida-like Barra to get to Grumari, a tranquil heaven. A surfer's paradise too. Well worth a trip out if you're in Rio for more than a few days.

Perfect local attraction, always west zone is the best, little paradise in Rio. Besides marsh vegetation grows next to the beach and a rain forest surrounds its hills are picture perfect. tho what I found out was Abricó beach which is next to Grumari is so so awesome . What I love about it is nude beach!!!!Amazing, relatively secluded beach!!!... More

Far away from the main known beaches in Rio, Grumari is located after "Prainha" beach and is a place to go if you want to have a deeper conexion with nature and still be close to the city. Favored by surfers, the beach is also good for swimmers who like to play on the waves. PS: On weekends it may... More

A little far away but worth spending the whole day (except on sunny weekends, when it is crowded). One may choose one extreme or another for eating well - different styles, the second, at the end after Recreio and Prainhas - more popular. Good place to go with firends. Rent a car and get there early (before 10 AM, if... More

A beach favored by surfers, the beach is still great for those who just want to lay out, be outside of the city and enjoy the water. Be prepared to pay a few reals for parking and for using the restroom and to rent beach chairs, but otherwise, the setting is divine, there are small little huts with food and... More

Nice beach with a good structure such as bathrooms, kiosks with food and beverages. It is a typical surfer's beach, but the water is calm near the shore.Arrive early as it tends to crowd and as soon as the parkiing fills, the place is closed for car access.

If you like to be a sardine, go to Ipanema on the weekend. It's rammed. If you prefer some space and nature while still in Rio, go to secluded Grumari. You'll need to rent a car as it's beyond Barra and if you go on the weekend, you need to get there before 11. It's nature reserve and they only... More
