Beautiful beach, very clean, not to many people and salespersons, but we were there on a weekday. The waves were ok, even for kids compared to Copacabana and other beaches in the area.

Went to Pepe Beach a few times. Much calmer than Copacabana and Ipanema. Also much safer. Only bad thing I would say are the prices at the beach bars, much more expensive than most other beaches in Rio de Janeiro.

The canal from the city dumps into the ocean right at the Pepe beach. It is awfully dirty. You dont exactly see it on the sea surface but if you stared at it long enough the froth is disgusting. We stayed at a high rise...More

Away from the tourist areas, right in the beginning from Barra da Tijuca. Nice beach, famous for the rich and beautiful. A bit more quiet compared to Ipanema or Lebon beach. Surely worth it, if you have a car.

I live two blocks from this beach and after living some yeas of my life in Ipanema (posh area in Rio de Janeiro) the Pepê beach is my corner outside Ipanema. The crowd is smaller, the water is nicer and the people scene is (almost)...More
