Pepe Beach, Rio de Janeiro

(4.4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful beach, very nice, during season a place in the sand is disputed, good infrastructure.

  • Compared to the beaches on the South side, we found Pepe Beach best for children. The waves usually break a little farther from the sand, forming a small pool with cool marolas for children. The rest seems quite the beach on the South side, with the same structure and stalls. Praia do Pepe always with beautiful people. In the tent that we they took the snacks to the beach kiosk.

  • The beach features a clean sand and clean water too cold though. Has availability in some networks and football fields. Quiet spot and has several apartments facing the sea, which I consider very advantageous
