Beach Nature / Park
The sand at Praia Vermelha contains ruby crystals, that reflect sunlight and give off a reddish hue when the sun goes down, hence the lovely name of the beach, the Red Beach. The beach is located in the neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro and between two hills, Urca and Babylon hills. The sea is calm but deep. At the beach, there are many historical monuments, two fortresses and a Chopin statue. See Praia Vermelha and all Penha has to offer by arranging your trip with our Penha vacation builder.

Where to stay in Penha

Although it draws many visitors with its large theme park, Penha features few mid-range hotels, with the majority of its accommodations falling into the guesthouse category. Some of these establishments offer basic rooms with few or no amenities, while others provide lots of privacy and access to secure parking, enclosed garden areas, or large balconies. Keep in mind that room prices rise steeply the closer you get to the theme park, the area's biggest attraction.

  • The beach of the beautiful nature. Take the path on the right and you will arrive at the waterfall trail. Caution when bathing in the off-season when there is no lifeguard. Thick sea-time the beach tends to be dangerous.

  • Another beautiful beach of Penha. Rough sea Beach, ideal for surfing. Soft sands and several excerpts from rocks, where in some places form natural pools in low tides. Infrastructure of bar and on-site restaurant. Great to spend the entire day.

  • Beautiful beach, quiet, easy access, but with agitated sea, from what I understand she is good for sports.
