A good beach but as i told there are many houses and condomíneos so it is a place for you to go and enjoy an afternoon with the sunset view, or maybe a coffe place to talk about life!!

It is the surrounding area that has fallen on hard times. Thirty years ago the area was pristine and undeveloped, with a vibrant seasonal campground and little else to spoil the environment. Now there are run down apartment buildings, abandoned beach kiosks, broken pavements, and Pontal Tim Maia - the landmark morro of Recreio - marked with ugly graffiti tags. Too bad.

Recreio is a great place to drive litle out of the City, and there you can visit the Museu of Art Naif. Also great restaurantes close by.

This is the right beach if you like quiet beaches. The crowd is eclectic but most are off-the-beaten-track style. It is mostly safe even though caution is never too much. A good tip is to go to the beach right in fromt of BARRA BALI condo, a bunch of big white buildings, ways from the beach but close enough to make this part of the beach safer and with eating/drinking options. Also, this part of the brach is known as being gay friendly even though I have not seen any difference from other beaches. It was also supposed to be a nudism place but I think that it is not anymore, or at least, not on the day I was there.
