The magic of this beach - actually a part of Barra da Tijuca beach - is that it is located in front of one of the city's biological reserves. So, you can't access by bus and you need to park your car before you arrive...More

There is nothing special about this beach. Unless you are staying in "Recreio" or Barra da Tijuca" neighborhoods or is willing to drive it´s not worth the trouble of getting there.
