Praia de Grumari, Rio de Janeiro

4.7
Unwind and enjoy the rustic nature at Praia de Grumari, an environmentally protected zone featuring six pristine beaches in Rio de Janeiro's only unpopulated neighborhood. Buffered by rainforest-covered mountains, the dense salt marsh greenery provides necessary shade. The long golden sandy stretches here remain the only nude beach around the city. Free of development save a few modest bars, this beach leaves enough room for visitors--unlike most other popular Rio spots. Waves can get rough, so you need to be a good swimmer (surfing is also possible). Bring your own food and drinks.

  • When I wanted peace and quiet, my choice was well-aimed Grumari. Practically deserted Beach, access only with own transport, a few stalls (I confess that I had days that went and didn't have), a simple botequinho with fair price. The best part, is that the cell phone reception is bad (I would prefer when literally wouldn't start) and that is the difference that makes this a true paradise retreat!

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.
