From above, this world-famous beach locale looks like an ice cream cone. Deep blue sea gives way to a vanilla beach, and colorful umbrellas dot the sand like rainbow sprinkles. Up close, it’s just as sweet. From the peak of Corcovado Mountain, you stand next to the Christ the Redeemer statue and marvel at the thriving city below. Face pointed at the sun, you can hardly believe you’ve made it to paradise. Once you make it back down the mountain, golden coastline and barely-there swimsuits remind you that yes, this is the good life. Grab a seat on the sand and soak it up while you can. With so many Rio de Janeiro beach hotels to choose from, it’s not hard to wander wisely here. So turn off your phone and let the local flavor wash over you.
Copacabana isn’t just for Fanilows (aka Barry Manilow’s biggest fans), it’s also for beachgoers like you who want the full cultural experience in a country as lively as Brazil. Visit this famous stretch of sand, and you won’t be alone. But the crowds don’t bother you; you’ll wade out into the Atlantic Ocean and gaze upon the turquoise waters without a care in your heart. You can continue your epic people watching at Ipanema, where sunkissed locals lay out and you’ll always find a friendly soccer match underway. Many of the best beach hotels in Rio de Janeiro are just a Frisbee throw away, so you can make it to the sand within minutes of opening your peepers.
People watching on the sand might be the best coastal activity in Rio, but it’s not the only one. Lively volleyball games often take place on the beach, and you can also paddleboard, paraglide, and kayak just offshore. Meanwhile, private boat tours let you explore the sea at your own pace. If you want to glide through the water at a leisurely pace, trade in a power boat charter for a sailing excursion. On the land side of beach-adjacent territory, there are tons of restaurants and nightlife aplenty to keep you busy once you’re ready to towel off. Near the coast, intriguing hiking trails in Tijuca National Forest beckon you to see the greener side of Rio. Let the mist of a waterfall kiss your face and enjoy the fresh air of this urban retreat.
You can’t decide between an epic hiking adventure and a vacation spent with your toes buried in the sand. If you wander wisely in Brazil, you don’t have to choose. After you book one of the best Rio de Janeiro hotels on the beach, like the Copa Sul Hotel or Rio Othon Palace, your vacation in paradise is off to a fortuitous beginning. Will you have the time of your life? Com certeza!
