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.

  • Have sports tracks, the Park and the beach one step away from each other, is ideal for me, also the view of the Sugar Loaf gives a special framework to this beach, which is fairly quiet and a step in a very nice neighborhood, as Flamengo, is which has good trade, services, hotels and places to eat or drink something , at pretty reasonable prices, as the restaurant of the Hotel Augustus completo de Paysandú, econonmico, abundant, tasty and with good care. In addition, almost no vendors on the beach, so you can rest without problems.
