4.7/5 based on 3,400+ reviews on the web
Sandwiched between the mountains, Mirante da Prainha offers a tranquil, clean, and isolated escape from Rio's bustle. Considered the best surf beach in Rio, the crescent-shaped stretch is flanked by rocks and lofty cliffs; as a result, waves up to 3 m (9.8 ft) high come in fast with multiple breaks, suitable for experienced surfers. Look for the regular Surf Bus in Rio if you don't have a car to get here. You may see some cameras on site at this favorite shooting location for television.

  • A beautiful beach, with a beautiful and giddy to arrive way but without any danger, once on the beach, is a small and strong waves, coastline should go with caution with the boys by the force of the waves. I went with much expectactativa but not me it seemed more than other normal beaches of Brazil. Anyway is a recommended visit

  • Soon after the pontal, last of the wonderful city beach is prainha, a small portion of sand surrounded by hills untouched and with reduced space to park the cars. Who wants to know is wonder of nature need to be early, but it's going to be hard to want to leave. The beach has lifeguard policing and kiosk.
