4.5
#13 of 32 in Beaches in Rio de Janeiro
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.

    Best beach I went in recent days, where the cold wind of August not reaches and your beauty is irrevocable. Breathtaking! Super recommend. Best kiosk was the ocean.

    Pepê beach is in a beautiful corner lot, with great frequency and the kiosks, are excellent. Is a great place to visit with the family. The kiosks sell healthy foods and some even sell fried foods. On this beach the possibility of finding any famous personality and great. Note that is a kite site, i.e. this sport depends on the wind, then in July was very cold, even with Sun and reasonable temperatures.

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.
