Rio de Janeiro’s Beaches
Whether you’re a sun-seeker or a water sports enthusiast, Rio de Janeiro has the perfect beach for you. Copacabana is the most popular beach, where you can swim, surf, sunbathe, or join in one of the many beach football games taking place! This beach is the perfect photo backdrop, flanked by city landscapes and mountains. Ipanema is a little less crowded than Copacabana and is the beach most used by residents. Here you can lie back on the beach and sip on a cold beer. Barra da Tijuca Beach was used for sports during the 2016 Summer Olympics and is therefore favoured by serious surfers – so head here if you’d like to get in the water!
