Flamengo district, Rio de Janeiro

(130+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
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. To visit Flamengo district and get the most from your holiday in Rio de Janeiro, create itinerary details personal to you using our Rio de Janeiro holiday planner.
