Pepe Beach, Rio de Janeiro

4.5
Animated and vibrant, with white sand and clear water, Pepe Beach has all the ingredients of the archetypal Brazilian beach. Located just enough away from the center of Rio to be considered off-the-beaten-track, the beach is lent renown by the fact that it was the old haunt of Brazilian soccer legend Pele.

  • First praia da barra. Right at the beginning. There are plenty of stalls and stalls of food and drink. The sea is very pale. Beach well frequented. There is no bathroom. Who's going to drive, go in the morning, get seat in the middle of the day is hit the mega sena. RS

  • No less interesting to Copacabana or Ipanema, where most tourists head. Is a typical Carioca Beach, very wide where you can stand quite still, comparatively the city context in which we find ourselves. The water is always very moved, both in winter and in summer, I have been 4 times in Rio, in different seasons, and the water temperature is always the same. Obviously quite low as ocean and moving water just as I said. Very charming Sunrise and sunset ... ...
