Flamengo district, Rio de Janeiro

(3.2/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • I was staying for two days in the neighborhood of Flamengo, for some business nearby. Beautiful neighborhood, residential, quiet and close to the subway and public transport.

  • I found the amazing neighborhood. Has its own parks, beaches and history. The sea water is darker, warm and no waves, but has a different view to the Rj.

  • During my stay in Rio, I was in the neighborhood of Flamengo. Located in the city center, no problem so to access the different sights via public transport. Lively area with many restaurants and shops. You can also access easily to other parts of the city on foot. It is a quiet family neighborhood. During the weekends, the main road (type 3-way home) becomes completely pedestrian. Thus we see the joggers, families strolling, etc. Once the road crossing (by a small bridge), you can directly access the beach which has the same name. Here again we find athletes playing football (of course), others doing yoga, others, like me, just sitting on the sand to enjoy the place and get drunk all that we see, sipping a cold coconut water.
