Praia do Recreio

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
4/5

attractions

Some 40-minutes bus or cab ride away from Ipanema and Copacabana, this scenic beach is a popular hangout for surfers and body boarders. Although packed at weekends and on public holidays, it is usually blissfully quiet during the week. The ambience is a world away from the touristic rush and crush of Rio´s more famous beaches, and the jungle-fringed setting is nothing short of spectacular. Nearby, informal bar-restaurants offer a chance to refuel, and the atmosphere here is a whole lot more laidback and less hectic than that of central Rio. Although not far from the rush and crush of the city, it feels like a whole world away.
