Beach
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.

  • I thought there would be talking birds here 1 out of 5 stars for no talking animals
  • 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
  • This beautiful and extensive beach is located between the effervescent Barra da Tijuca and Recreio dos Bandeirantes beach. Beach clean, calm and rough seas. Need more user support/infrastructure/tourist. Much frequented by artists and famous.
