Reserva Beach, Rio de Janeiro

(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Reserva Beach offers a peaceful setting on white sand lapped by warm blue sea. This beach is popular with surfers and swimmers, but you can also enjoy a day of quiet sunbathing in this secluded spot. The area surrounding the beach is a nature reserve, where you can explore numerous hiking trails though lush vegetation. Along the way stop by a rustic food stall for a taste of authentic Brazilian cuisine, prepared from fresh fish and served hot. The area has several bicycle paths and playgrounds, making this site a favorite of families with small children. Locals recommend several trendy neighborhood restaurants known for their Rodizio-style service, where instead of a menu, an assortment of dishes is brought to the table for picking and choosing.

  • Wonderful beach. Clean and very quiet, little frequented. Don't have many kiosks and salesmen. Does not pass bus there.

  • Nice beach to relax. If you are staying at Barra or Recreio a cycling is a pleasant activity with an awesome view. Sun rise and sun set views are also amazing!
  • few people and nice view
  • Great place to surf
  • Beach is not very crowded. Usually rough seas and ice cream. A few kiosks and salesmen. But it's worth the peace of mind that does not exist in ZS.

  • Enjoyed the tranquillity, was not filled as always is the trendy Copacabana. It is worth to enjoy better the beach without tightening. I was on the island 19.
