Flamengo Beach, Rio de Janeiro

(2.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Is a beach very quiet, have of all hand and not is is full of people, you can leave your belongings and nobody you going to steal. Sell drinks with alcohol, water of coconut and various juices. In addition to things as a snack to eat. Sports can be.

  • A wonderful beach accompanied by a park. A place to unwind, have fun with the whole family, picnicking, meditate, walk or run as it is a space open to the public, for people of all tastes.
