Owner description: Prainha Beach is a secluded half-moon-shaped beach, bordered on each side by rocks and high cliffs. It is one of the best surfing spots in Rio, and may be reached by car or by the orange "surf bus" that passes through Copacabana and Ipanema.

Very clean, a surfing point.
The beach is always organized. A little spot of heaven in Rio!
Everyone should try. But hey! Get there early, theres a max ammount of people allowed to be in the beach.

This is a beautiful small beach near the Barra area, which really is a no miss! It is quite calm and clean (although I imagine it is quite different during peak days/season). The water is clean and clear.

There is also a decent level of infrastructure as there is a good toilet/shower installation.

Drinks and chairs/umbrellas are about the same price as everywhere else in Rio (will run you about 10-15 BRL for a couple of chairs and umbrella).

We drove to Prainha, and parking area is also fairly good, with decent shaded areas.

Absolutely beautiful!

A Brazilian friend who lives in Ipanema took us to this beach and we loved it. We had to scramble out a bit over some rocks, but once we got there it was a gorgeous little beach. Well worth the drive out there.

Ipanema Beach is the place to be in Rio. Much better then Copacabana. Ipanema has a good mix of locals as well as tourists. The water temperature was perfect and the atmosphere tranquil.
