The first time to Rio. This beach is the best beach from Rio. The wave, blue beach, friendly people, all perfect! But it’s quite far from the centre. So beautiful beach! A must visit place in Rio!

This area was so nice and chilled we could have stayed and relaxed for weeks. Plenty to do on the beach and loads of stuff to get in the water with. The water was a real nice temperature.

Like many beaches in Brazil, this is a very crowded place, with really bad urban planning. Google photos are not what you will find there. I was there in February/18 a week after Carnaval, the restaurants and bars put chairs and tables on the sand,...More

We passed through here for a work trip, and 10 minutes at the beach was torture! Seems laid back, great family place. I want to go back!

I simply love Barra. It has everything you need. You have the Barra beach, good for surfers and similar sports. Then the Prainha, extra quite and nice. And also a great hiking to the "piscinas naturais" (natural pools) in the open sea. Awesome. You have...More

this is a lovely beach, but if you go off down the trails you will get some stunning views and photos and also end up at rocky areas where you can enter the water and a little quieter than the beach
