It is the only beach that you cannot see from the street in Rio. It is the beach for surfing, right after the end of Barra Beach. Nice stop on the way to Prinha and Grumari

It used to be beautiful. It still is, but occupation got out of hand. On weekdays can be a nice visit. Clean waters, I suppose.

The waves & water are the best in whole Rio de Janeiro city.

The people around usualy came from low class part of the neibohood, they are more simple. Plenty of alcohol on kiosks, I think, colourful adults drinks got more usually with brand & blendings then other beachs in Rio.

There´s a lot surfing. Two big rocks to be explored, one very easy to walk over, the other with, 1or 2 levels climbing.

Other significant thing is you may find more local kids, specially in the weekends.

Like other beach its coupled with WC stations & kioskes with warm food!
I think during the 60´s & 70´s there was many set of film there , or from that time til nowadays still very popular keepinf film set for commercials & tv programs. There's a lot of internacional surf festivals there. I can count that beach is the most photografed beach in Rio.
