This small beach is one of my favourite beaches here in Rio for a quick trip with the kids. Not usually as busy as Ipanema or Leblon. Nice spot to relax if you've taken the early morning cable car up to Sugar Loaf. Sure, some of the beaches out of town are far cleaner and more beautiful but it's not my idea of fun to spend 1 1/2 hours in the car with kids just to get to the beach. This one does us just fine.

good locations with the pao de acucar mountains nearby, but very crowded - better beaches in Rio to go such as prainha and grumari!

Beautiful small beach right below Sugarloaf mountain in a pretty neighbourhood of Urca. Would be worth spending some time here after your visit to sugarloaf mountain.

Poluted water, narrow sand strip But, anyway, take a look of it after you see it from the top, from the Sugar Loaf and Morro da Urca. Short walking distance from the entrance to Sugar Loaf cable car

This small beach in Rio de Janeiro is very special! It´s close to the entrance of the Sugar Loaf, so if you are planing on visiting this specific spot, you could also enjoy the beauty of this small beach.
On the right side, you can find Circulo Militar da Praia Vermelha, there is a very good restaurant with great variety of dishes.
On the left, there is a special trail called "passeio do Bem-te-vi" or 'pista Claudio coutinho', it circles the Morro da Urca, and you can have very speacil views of the ocean as well as spot monkeys, Big blue Butterflies and colorful birds.
I hope you enjoy it!
