Flamengo Beach, Rio de Janeiro

2.8
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.

  • The beach is a place of living. The sea is very polluted, but the sands are home to various sports modalities, in addition to stalls of snacks. Wonderful view of the sugar loaf and the entrance of Guanabara Bay and Niteroi. Come early and see a beautiful Sunrise!

  • A beautiful beach, overlooking the Christ and Sugar Loaf, and the beaches of the river's best: matte offering ice cream and cookies. Away from the beaches of zona sul Clapper, but still very well located in the Centre, becomes a great option for those who want to enjoy a nice relaxing walk.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
