Joa Beach (Joatinga), Rio de Janeiro

4.7
Nestled between the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Joa Beach (Joatinga) is one of the more exclusive beaches in Rio. Once you reach this remote spot in wilderness, you will be awe-struck by 220 m (721 ft) long strip of white sand protected by a cliff. This beach is recommended for experienced swimmers due to its wild waves. You can also view the isolated Joa Beach (Joatinga) from the top of the cliff. Bring your own drinks since the infrastructure at the beach leaves a bit to be desired. Plan my Rio de Janeiro trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • At this beach you got that go with someone who knows, a road is accessed by a private neighborhood and you've got to be able to reach the private beach, it is somewhat difficult to reach. The beach is small but very nice, the sea is special for Surf and view from the nose that you got that down is amazing. It is difficult to get with flip flops between the rocks, I recommend you go in sneakers and then change them.

  • Joah beach is the best urban beach of Rio de Janeiro. Small, bucolic and with not so strong waves. Access is difficult if you are not familiar with trails you better go, view and take pictures. Have to get there early because parking does not include many cars. And has a very polite personnel after the 12:00 the morning walking dogs, playing soccer and smoking.
