Urca Beach, Rio de Janeiro
(2.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
A beach with breathtaking views, Urca Beach is perfect if you want to blend in with the locals. This small beach faces Guanabara Bay and provides you with views of Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer. The placidity of the water is perfect for taking a dip and hiking is possible along the path behind the kids’ park. The infrastructure is good with bathrooms, cafes, and restaurants. Enjoy some refreshing coconut water and in the evening you might even hear a Peruvian flute being played. Put Urca Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Rio de Janeiro holiday planner.

  • Often confused with the Red Beach, also located in Urca, the beach is polluted, but offers a nice option for those who just want to enjoy the view and relax. The bath is not recommended, but represents a great opportunity to talk, take photos, eat or drink, and all in a pleasant setting.

  • When I was there was enough residents in street next to the old Casino, as it was not my town, I felt safe ... but it's worth to check out and anything, take a beach on red Beach, where you can arrive on foot walking through the neighborhood of Urca, which looks like a quiet village, beautiful thing.
