Reserva Beach, Rio de Janeiro

(4.7/5 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.

  • Is the section where the Avenida Lúcio Costa has. Visual beautiful and crystal clear water. Has some kiosks with rent of chairs, parasol and parking. At the kiosks don't expect good food, just the essentials to enjoy the beach. Also has a few other spots where you can park but does not have any support. On the other hand privacy is total. On weekends, as in all the beaches, the frequency increases.

  • Beach not very busy, which is good to spend the afternoon and watch the sunset. Great to enjoy the view and relax.
