Beaches of Rio is a 29 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near the city of Rio de Janeiro that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Discover the natural reserves of Recreio, prainha and Grumari and the Rio's trendiest neighbourhood: Barra da Tijuca. This route attempts to point out some interesting beaches and sites that you can try when in Rio. There are quite a number of them! Unlike the other guide, this one is not meant to be done one stop after another. You'll need a lot of of time to do that. Instead, look through the list, and see what you are interested in and go straight there. You can probably do two or three if you want some time to play in the water and work on that tan on the beach.
