Pepe Beach, Rio de Janeiro

4.5
#15 of 32 in Beaches in Rio de Janeiro
Beach Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.

  • Beautiful long beach. Not so crowded by tourists.
  • Great beach. Peaceful...
  • Very good for holidays
  • On one side the beautiful stone and the sea and the nearby bar. Pepê beach is the best point of the bar for both those travelling alone as for families with children. There are a wide variety of sports since the futevolei passing by cycling, walking, SUP, Kiteboarding, surfing. There are great restaurants and kiosks. And there are spaces for children to play.
