It is a beautiful and safe beach, it is very far away from practically everything, but it is worth the visit. However if you don't get there early, around 8am, it will be very difficult to park your car, so be prepared to wake up really early!!!

The beach is surrounded by cliffs, and is located in the "Grumari" reserve where the "Atlantic Forest" is still well preserved, makes this beach unique for its beauty. The public is mostly composed of young surfers and backpackers who love nature.

Wild beach and surrounded by Atlantic Forest. Transparent water and light waves. Little structure for food and drinks. The nature is gorgeous!

One of my favorite beaches in Rio, with the cleanest water to swim, and just amazing sights! Try to stop in Prainha and Macuba beaches too before you hit Grumari. They are really incredible.

Since the Olomouc games the area has changed a lot, but still a good place if you want peace, there a lot people surfing and few tourists.

It's amazing you can find such a calm beach (waves are wild, though) so close to such a large city. Go for a peaceful day and take what you can (like water and food) as there's very limited infrastructure. After the beach, when returning stop at Prainha and order a grilled catch of the day or whatever fish they recommend.... More
