This hidden beach is my absolute favorite beach in Rio, make sure to check the tides before you go! The access is easiest by car, entrance to the beach is via a condominium just next to the Costa Brava club.

It could be the most amazing beach experience ever, but you may check the wind position before you go - be sure the Jacarepagua's lagoon water is flowing to the opposite side. And also is good to have in mind that the sand line is...More

You may not see any beach during high tide like it happened for us. Still, we had great time siting on the rocks and watching the power of ocean. The waves were splashing very very high when they hit the rocks. So, must be great...More
