Joana Beach, Rio das Ostras

4.1
#2 of 13 in Beaches in Rio das Ostras
With calm, tranquil water and located in a rocky cove, the overwhelming impression of Joana Beach is one of peaceful relaxation. If sandy beaches aren’t your thing, there are plenty of rocks to stretch out on and enjoy the sea and sunshine. Fishermen tend to try their luck on the nearby cliffs, so if you feel hungry you can always sample some of the local marine life they take out of the water. Joana Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Rio das Ostras Edition.

  • Really like this beach but you have to arrive early to get a seat and enjoy the ride, have a small area with sand it soon becomes full not being possible to place, but overall the beach is really good especially for children. Watch out for the parking lot, in high season profiteers charge high prices and the site is not private, it's public area.

  • The beach is very nice. The only local kiosk serves good snacks and cold beer. When I went to had only Brahma, Antarctica and Itaipava as options. Those who prefer other beers, you may not find it there. The beach is small and calm waters, good for children. Because it's small, can get pretty full!

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.
