We stayed in a hotel opposite this beach in August 2017. The huge waves were crashing in and our two boys (10 and 13) spent many a happy hour playing in them. Soft sand underfoot right into the sea. We wouldn't swim in these conditions...More

What I love about this beach is that it is not so crowded as most of the beaches in Rio, even in the summer. The water is very clean and it seems that you are away from a big city like Rio. Take your own...More

There is nothing special about this beach. Unless you are staying in "Recreio" or Barra da Tijuca" neighborhoods or is willing to drive it´s not worth the trouble of getting there.
