Inspirock Rating:
3.1/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
An area of reclaimed land near the beach makes up the Flamengo district, where you'll find massage therapists working on clients in the shade, or cyclists enjoying the trails that snake through the park. You'll also find shopping and bars throughout the area that will help you pass time before you attend an event in the park. The beach is pleasant for strolls, but the water is too polluted for swimming, so stick to the reclaimed land for the best experience.

  • Great place for a walk day, with many green area next to the beach. It is a safe place and not so expensive in comparison to the area south of the city.

  • Flamengo is a family neighborhood, with sick trade, Metro station and buses to various parts of the city. Your most important leisure spot is the Aterro do Flamengo, which on weekends receives many visitors.

  • I was only there briefly, but enjoyed my visit. Good selection of restaurants. Watch your valuables - the streets didn't feel particularly safe. good for public transport.
