Flamengo Beach, Rio de Janeiro

(260+ reviews on the web)
Beach
With its side-on view of Sugarloaf Mountain, the landscape of Flamengo Beach has been painted and photographed countless times. Thanks to its incredibly fine, white sand, the beach is a hot spot for jogging, soccer, volleyball, and other beach sports. Unlike its world famous sibling the Copacabana, Flamengo Beach is frequented mostly by locals, and you are less likely to be hassled by hawkers and other tourist traps. Like all beaches in Rio de Janeiro, water quality is an issue, but this is steadily improving as the government implements better sewage treatment facilities.

  • It is a pity that the water quality at the beach of the Flemish responds to your beauty. Everyone knows that Copacabana beach is the darling of Rio de Janeiro.

This is a great place for walking, cycling or simply lie down on the grass under one of hundreds of trees that make up the scenery and enjoy the view.
