Not as happening as Ipanema or Copacabana, but definitely more safe. Spent a lot of time lounging on the beach during my visit. Good vibes, friendly people, music at the different restaurants, bars, and vendors along the beach. There is always an area in the...More

Not as famous as Copacabana and Ipanema, Barra da Tijuca has the best beach in Rio. More than 20km long, it's perfect to relax, for swimming and surfing.

Beautiful , clean golden sandy beach. Be careful if you go in the sea, as the Rio currents are very strong. Lots of beach bars. 8km of safe cycle paths adjacent to the beach. Much quieter and less touristy than Copacabana. Quite a few sellers...More
