Create an itinerary including Barra da Tijuca Beach
With over 15 km (9 miles) of white sand met by clear, blue-green ocean, Barra da Tijuca Beach is the largest beach in Rio de Janeiro, and the farther along it you go, the more deserted it becomes. The agitated waters attract surfers, windsurfers, body boarders, kite surfers, and fishing enthusiasts, and there is a high energy about the busier stretch, where you will see young people playing beach volleyball and soccer. In need of refreshment, you should visit Pepe, named in honor of the late champion hang-glider and regular of Barra da Tijuca Beach, where you will find great sandwiches and fresh natural juices. The quieter sweep of beach provides you with a tranquil paradise, and while it may not have many facilities, nor does it have any crowds. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Barra da Tijuca Beach and many more Rio de Janeiro attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Rio de Janeiro trip itinerary planner.

  • Perfect for long walks. Not too much to do on the way / beach. More south, lesser building, more nature / birds.
