Rio de Janeiro Sights

Praia do Vidigal

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

Calm, clean Vidigal Beach is next to the Sheraton hotel. The small stretch of sand was the playground of residents of the nearby Vidigal favela until the hotel was built in the 1970s. These days it's practically a private beach for hotel guests. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: swimming.
