  • Beautiful extensive sand beach and clear. The beach is strong but at the very end of her has a part where is the stones which is calmer. Good restaurants and guesthouses.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches of Rio das Ostras. Boardwalk in a fit state to make a good walk/run or even ride a bike (bike path). In the backwater is a great climate to take children that makes a "pool" of salt water among the stones.

  • Excellent beach but watch out for the waves that blow near the rocks. Didn't notice on any stretch of beach "saves lives" just signs with red flags

Where to stay in Rio das Ostras

As a growing seaside resort destination, Rio das Ostras features a blend of old and new, glitzy and down-to-earth in terms of places to stay. The majority of the city's larger hotels and more glamorous resort-style accommodations lie within a few blocks of the main beaches, and the area along the Praia Costa Azul features a particular concentration. As you might imagine, many hotels charge extra for an ocean view, so consider requesting a room without one to save a bit on lodging. As is the case throughout Brazil, you'll find plenty of "pousadas"--something like independently run, small-scale hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses--scattered around town, which often make solid budget options.
