Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach, Rio de Janeiro

Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
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. Put Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach and other Rio de Janeiro attractions into our Rio de Janeiro vacation builder, and watch your holiday take shape.
