This nice and exotic beach between two riffs in the city offers some spectacular views of the sea and the riffs, which is typical of Rio. Some nice activity goes around, with some radical flying sports. However, some issues: most of the beach is polluted...More

Nice beach, much quieter than Copacabana and Ipanema. The main reason people visit is to go hang gliding or paragliding. It's a great landing spot if you doing some gliding and a great observation spot if your not

Sao Conrado beach is not crowded like the beaches of Ipanema and Leblon. It's a residential area with beautiful view. Cons are that there are no people selling chairs and umbrellas and when it rains the beach gets dirty. It's not a touristy spot.
