This beach has the advantage of being able to choose which side of the rock is best depending on the waves and the wind.

Very long, clean beach with enough places for eating and drinking. You can climb up the small island that is opposite the beach. Depending on the tide it is easier to reach or not.

This one of the best beaches in Rio because is far from the crowdy of South Zone and Barra. If you are of the kind that wants to have your own space and relax in a beach day, this is an excellent choice for you.

If you want to relax and not get bothered like at Ipanema or even worse Copacabana beach, take a trip to Recreio or even closer Barra beach. Much cleaner and safer.

Go if you are tired of crowd beaches. This spot is popular among local people, but due to its distance, very rarely it gets busy.
