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

Go early (arrive before 8am) and spend the whole day there. There is no public transportation so you should have your own car and there aren't many parking spaces.

Everyone must visit and stay in this fantastic beach. Tourists can find a paradise with the sea and the mountains around.

Great beach to go to... bring water and all the essentials. Mind burglars after 4pm. Beach most preferred by the locals, cariocas, although not visited by them frequently because of the distance. Nonetheless you may find it not crowded but filled with regulars. Recommend eating at Tia Penha afterwards...
