Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach, Rio de Janeiro

4.7
With its sweeping arc of soft white sand, blue ocean, and palm trees, Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach is everything you’d expect from a Brazilian beach, but without the crowds. You can pick a spot, settle down, and, due to legislation restricting the height of nearby buildings, peacefully enjoy the sunshine well into the afternoon. There is, however, a good chance you might end up an extra in a Brazilian soap opera as scenes are regularly filmed on the beach. The wide boardwalk is great for a stroll and lined with kiosks, where you can buy cold beer, fresh coconut water, and tasty snacks.

  • Excellent beach to take the children, but select the specific points where there is no danger. Notify If arriving on the beach. Find free parking, coming soon. There are many street vendors in the sand and you aint bad served. Take sombrero (tent), because the rent is expensive.
