Costa Azul Beach, Rio das Ostras

Cool swimming pools appear at low tide where you can submerge to the shoulder and watch the sun reflecting off the water just before sunset. Even with such a romantic atmosphere, Costa Azul Beach remains  a family friendly beach known for its clean and peaceful premises. You'll also be close to civilization, so there is no need to bring your own food or drink. Instead, try one of the tasty restaurants in town when you get the urge to chow down. Plan your visit to Costa Azul Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Rio das Ostras travel route planning tool .

  • We are do Marujo Posada. The first day went to the other side and today decidimoa come to this beach for the stones. The scenery is spectacular. We stopped to eat at a place on the beach. Truly exquisite and very accessible. It is to recommend. The sea is very calm, the only thing that in November there is none and we are alone alone. But the site must be very good

  • Beaches with many strong waves, for me no good to come in just to look and admire the beauty of nature. The Observatory is very beautiful, now the beach that I loved and I'm going back is black beautiful sands, many rocks to climb and take pictures of turtles swimming, and that to bathe very good, more Black Sands is just the name sand is normal color.

  • A beach for every taste, good for adults and children. Surrounded by kiosks and restaurants, close to the whale's square and other attractions and variety of hostels.

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.
