Inspirock Rating:
2.7/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • The luga is beautiful and have good places to eat, however there is a climate of insecurity, reports of assaults and advising people on what to do and how to maintain security.

  • The Flamengo beach is affectionately dubbed the "swamp" by locals, is located at Guanabara Bay, where the water is not as clean and clear as the ocean beaches. Dining options are limited to a few local kiosks. As the region is grounded, with an extensive Park between the Boulevard and the beach, the restaurants in Praia do Flamengo even overlook the sea. Better than the beach itself is the park with gardens of Burle Marx, but recommend caution, as there are many minors and street vagrants wandering through the Park.

  • Simply beautiful, calm Beach and that is clear in a few days before diving to see if the water is fine no smell and colorless, every time I went I was perfect, but it's a beach of Guanabara Bay so sometimes the quality of the water is a little bad, but it's a wonderful beach to spend the day and take family and children.
