Offering calm waters and a bit of remoteness rarely found so close to a big city, Barra de Guaratiba Beach is situated within an ecological reserve area. This beach, with its blue waters and white sands, is wedged between mangroves and the rainforest, so you can have lots of privacy far from other overcrowded beaches in this part of the country.

Don’t miss the region’s famous fish stew, which you can eat right on the sand, in the natural shade of tall native trees. Other nearby beaches can also be reached easily through a series of short trails. Put Barra de Guaratiba Beach at the forefront of your travel plans using our Rio de Janeiro trip planner .

  • In the Cove of Barra de Guaratiba two beaches themselves, of Barra de Guaratiba and next to the corner, at the end of it you will find the Spy Hill cut by trails considered moderate leading the latest beaches almost Wild River: dangerous, Buzios , Middle, deep and Hell, the more difficult to access. The path is made around 2 hours and 40 and is about 4 km. Unfortunately there are a lot of disposal in these trails and mangroves, and many stones pichadas these beaches are paradisiacal. The beaches of Barra de Guaratiba and Corner there is a beautiful view of the Restinga de Marambaia

  • Located between the famous beach of Grumari and Restinga da Marambaia is Praia da Barra de Guaratiba that has a beautiful setting and good infrastructure. They say the nostalgic that the beach has been better, when the real estate explosion there was arrived and it wasn't so easy to get to location, but still the beach guard your beauty. In the vicinity are some guesthouses and restaurants specializing in seafood, but in high season the strip of sand can be well played.
