Pepe Beach, Rio de Janeiro
(4.4/5 based on 360+ 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.

  • The beach is polluted, but the neighborhood is quiet. Has good restaurants in the vicinity. Place to make a lot of outdoor activity.

  • We visited the beach on a holiday, so this review might be a little skewed. The beach was full of people, we were on top of each other. The sand is white and fine, very nice. Sea water was cold, cloudy and doesn't smell like the sea! Rent chairs and parasol, a little old, for 5/6 reias. There are sellers of drinks, meals and ice cream everywhere. The efirras are great. At the end of the day the traffic to return to the South was chaotic. We will try to come back on a quieter day to see if you've changed our minds.

  • Always have the restaurants/bars and beach and the tents that already offer wi-fi, found interesting. People always willing to meet.
