Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Rio de Janeiro / Rio de Janeiro / Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach
With its sweeping arc of soft white sand, blue ocean, and palm trees, Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach is everything you’d expect from a Brazilian beach, but without the crowds. You can pick a spot, settle down, and, due to legislation restricting the height of nearby buildings, peacefully enjoy the sunshine well into the afternoon. There is, however, a good chance you might end up an extra in a Brazilian soap opera as scenes are regularly filmed on the beach. The wide boardwalk is great for a stroll and lined with kiosks, where you can buy cold beer, fresh coconut water, and tasty snacks. Add Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach and other attractions to your Rio de Janeiro trip itinerary using our Rio de Janeiro tour planner.
