“The most beautiful urban beach ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2012

A paradisiac beach with amazing sea colors (green and blues), a pure white sand, just in front of a very busy oceandrive with many great buildings and its lively street scene. At night it is still very interesting with many goo enterteinment and food options.

“Wonderful beaches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

You can find there the most beautiful beaches in the world. White sand (just like wheat flour), different sea colors (from green to dark blue), good and fresh sea food and amazing wind - be careful about that, the wind tends to mask the heat of the sun (sun protection all the time).

“2nd best beach in all of rio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

the beach itself is hugh..hugh..and in high seen it is packed. i just back from rio and found it very hard to put my towel in the sand. people were on top of us in all directions.
the sand it a soft powder white....so it really doesn't get to hot on the feet (almost like mexico).
the water is usually a bright blue with medium waves constantly flowing.
there are lots of people selling everything on the beach from food to bikinis. there are also banana boat rides ( which is when like 10 to 15 people get on a long raft and are taken like 200 feet out and pulled around ocean ( did it once lots of fun).
this is great beach....we actually spend an entire day....don't forget the sunblock
