(420+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • Deserted beach with dirt road to get to her. As we were with kids, we were just getting to know and not risk the sea bath (very angry).

  • Beach very good for those who enjoy a trail, or do some extreme sport. Access is not very good, but to drive. The waterfall has on the beach is spectacular, is about 1 km from the station of saves lives.

  • Rustic beach with little influence of the man. Enough rocks, pools between the rocks with native fish, very nice beach. Good option to decompress, beautiful place.

  • 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.
