Pepe Beach, Rio de Janeiro

(420+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • The beach is very nice, spacious and quiet, few people. But best is going deeper into the center of Barra da Tijuca.

  • If you are with a few extra pounds can even feel bad about being alone in a bikini in this place. Most people there are very well cared for with the aesthetics! Instead of sambão (q I love) and cold beer, if you listen to music and drink sparkling wine in glasses! Hahahaha Paparasis are seen everywhere. "each dive is a flash"!! various artists ... The beach is beautiful, the sea water is cold and there's plenty of wind, good for those who like to practice kitesurfing. Has all its sporting goods for rent there. Also overlooks Pedra da Gávea. Beautiful place!

  • Every time we go the bar we stopped at the Pepe to take coconut water and enjoy the beach. usually the water is very cold, but this year in particular we get lots of sunshine (literally River 40 cranes!) and the water was the perfect temperature and translucida. Where we saw many fish and crab!
