Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach, Rio de Janeiro

4.6
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.

  • Met in 2013, and since I don't want another place. Perfect weather and beautiful beaches ... Even being a neighborhood, is more than 40 km of the river. Condominiums. Love to be there
