    This beach is less crowded than other beaches in the area but it is still pretty fun. There are lots of vendors around. You can get some pretty delicious food and enjoy the water if you'd like to. There are chairs and umbrellas you can rent here as well.

    This is a lovely place to sit and watch the sunset. There were many people doing the same thing, so we felt perfectly safe being there.

    This beach is great for people watching, especially the kids playing football very skilfully. We sat in an area reserved for our hotel, with attendants, so felt safe. Didn’t see anything untoward happening. Breach is dirtier than expected with lots of rubbish in the sand. Vendors come round but they are not pesky.

    Amazing beach, far less crowded as compared to Ipanema or Capacabana. Great for surfing, but not so much for swimming. May be I was extremely unlucky, buy the week I was there it was all red flags.

    This is a lovely beach to visit if it isn't crowded. I found it to be less of a headache than Copacabana and less busy than Ipanema. It is one of the areas you should check out and explore when you first arrive in Rio so it stands out a bit in your memory.

    Chilled-out, secluded beach spot. The only drawback is that cell phone reception is very bad so it's hard to get an Uber when it's time to leave. The restaurant near the entrance will let you use their internet though.

    It is beautiful and easy to get there! The beach has a lot of tent for food and drinks, you can see people selling things in the beach too!
    You should prove mate and shrimps in the beach!

    Very close to the cable car station for Sugarloaf, so worth a quick trip there for a different view of Sugarloaf. But we had no reason to linger.

    This place is far from crowdy central places and mostly locals enjoy it, it is possible to take uber or city taxi to get there. it takes around 1 hour and 15 min to get to this hidden gem. if you get a taxi, ask the driver to wait for you because you might have chance to get taxi back to the city.
    this beach is quite clean, nice, calm, and fantastic.
    it is not a must see but it would be nice to make a plan for it in case you are having extra time in Rio

    This is probably one of the nicest beaches we have seen in Brazil however like all beaches is not very clean. The waves were good for surfing especially in the afternoon. Not very suitable for children. Some shade from trees was very welcoming. Takes 1hr not a very easy hike from Barra de Guaratiba to get there although taxi boat may also be possible.
