10 Amazing Places in Rio de Janeiro for a Beach Vacation
Rio de Janeiro is where people come to relax, socialize, and play. Stand up paddleboarding, surfing, bodyboarding, volleyball, futevolei (a hybrid volleyball/football combo), soccer, and swimming are all practiced along Rio’s beautiful coastline and across its many beaches. If you don’t want to get in on the sport scene, you can simply relax, maybe with a rented umbrella or chair, and enjoy snacks from the wandering vendors and drinks from the kiosks.
Whatever you choose, a day at one of Rio’s beaches is a day in paradise – the only hard part is choosing which beach vacation to enjoy!
The most famous beach of Rio de Janeiro, Copacabana is known for the iconic wavy pattern of black and white tiles on its boardwalk, its white sand, its swaying palm trees, and its surplus of snack vendors for the swarm of tourists. It is the best place in Rio de Janeiro to enjoy the beachside lifestyle, and caters especially to tourists.
Kiosks for drinking and snacking line the popular promenade, and every day of the week tourists congregate here to enjoy the water and relaxing vibes.
