Famous beaches in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is a fabulous tourist destination. The beach life is as tempting as it can get. From enjoying the fireworks at Copacabana beach (if you happen to be there on New Year) to indulging in para-sailing, you derive immense joy out of the beaches in Rio de Janeiro. So, before you pack your bags and take off for a vacation in Brazil, let us have a look at the beaches that dot the picturesque Rio de Janeiro city.


Take a stroll down Ipanema beach at any time of the day and you would come across a mass of people either taking a swim in the clear waters or just lying on the sandy beach enjoying the sun. But there is much more to Ipanema than just people relaxing on the beach and splurging on cold beer. It is also much preferred by the sporty kind and it is obvious that you would encounter a game of volleyball, soccer or water sports in progress.

Prainha Beach

This is a perfect getaway for you if you want to take a break from the hectic city life. This secluded and quite beach would help you relax and rejuvenate. Eating out at the beach is not a problem as one would come across a couple of kiosks selling food and drink. The best way to get to the beach is take a taxi from your hotel.

Copacabana Beach

One of the most popular beaches in Rio de Janeiro, Copacabana Beach is surely not to be missed. The 2.2-mile-long beach offers quite a few notable attractions. The beach is home to several bars where you can enjoy draft beer or gorge on the delicious herbed meat and fried onions. The government has set up sports facilities such as volleyball nets and football courts.


This is another beach that is quite popular among tourists. One of the most popular attractions here is the giant rock which is lined with walking trails. These walking trails provide you with a fantastic view of the Rio de Janeiro's coastline.

Praia Vermelha

This stunning beach is located right at the foot of the Sugar Loaf Mountain. It is a perfect spot for those looking to go for a swim in clear and calm waters. Do take a walk on the trail that leads to the base of the mountain and enjoy the majestic scenery.

But this is not all. There are several other lesser-known beaches such as Barra da Tijuca, Botafogo, Guaratiba, Leblon, and Pontal, that can throw surprises.
