It has a special energy. We were there during the Carnival, so it was a bit crowded but still amazing. You can find a spot near one of many bars on the beach so you can hear their music. Water is nice. Most definitely worth visiting.
Beach in Rio means nice white sand, beautiful ocean, beautiful people, some brahma/schol/original and a walk around the beach to make you forget all the stress and tensions you go through....
Was surprised the beach wasn't more crowded but we were not there at the weekend. Great to see the beach well used in the evenings, kids soccer, yoga, aerobics, volley ball and more.
Beautiful sand, white & clean. Warm sea - if you like some rough waves, great! Facilities all over. Brilliant. The 'beach sellers' sold good stuff, & didn't hassle too much.
The beach is not good for swinning. It's a surfers place anda place for locals to do sporting activities. It's one of the bad beaches I have seen all around the world
Clean sandy beaches with clean if not clear sea, spectacular views and beach vendors not too pushy even though quite a few of them - key is don't make eye contact!
Know your posts before going to the beach. From post 1 to 13, each one attracts a different demographic. Visit as many as you can!
Beach was a really so able place n suitable for all people. Very family orientated especially at the weekends.
