The eastern side of South America is protected by the continental shelf
making the conditions ideal for beach life. In Brazil hidden beaches
stretches out along the whole magnificent coast from the Amazon river
delta in the north, dancing Fortaleza, the sun of Natal, the reefs
of Recife, passing tropical Salvador and ending up in the marvellous
princess of the sea, Rio de Janeiro!
The Rio beach experience has something for any flavour, for young
and old, adventurers and sun slickers!
Most famous of all Rio de Janeiro beaches are the Copacabana and
Ipanema right in the city. Known for exotic Rio beach products and
rio beach wear, Copacabana is the origin of the bikini. Although
the story has it that two girls from Argentina were the first set
the new trend.
Copacabana is located in the south zone of Rio and is a brazil
beach landscape stretching out for 4 km. Ipanema lies right beside
with the spirit of ‘Garota de Ipanema’ (Girl of Ipanema)
preserving the laid back groove of Rio beach life. You can find

However, these famous Brazilian beaches are well known, so much
time will not be spent on them.

Now to my favourite of the Brazil hidden beaches in Rio de Janeiro,
Prainha! The name translates to ‘the little beach’ in
English and is located remote from civilization, appearing as a
lagoon with mountains covered in green jungle surrounding your whole
view! It’s just you, the white powder sand, jungle, the warm
sun and the white foaming waves making that relaxing breaking sound.
This paradise is known as the most beautiful, and the best surfing
beach of Rio de Janeiro.
The downside is the location.It can be hard getting to Prainha
beach as buses don’t go here. The options are renting a car
or hiring a taxi to bring and get you at specified times. But taxis
are cheap in Rio
