West of Recreio

West of Recreio Review

If you continue walking west from Recreio, you'll notice that this part of Rio is largely untouched; in fact, you'll see just three things: the mountains on your right, the road ahead, and the beach to your left. Numerous trails maintained by city workers lead to the hidden beaches west of Recreio. You'll see Rio's nude beach, Praia do Abricó, among the many short stretches of sand. Many of these beaches can be reached only on foot or by car, and are practically deserted during the week. Grumari is a favorite with surfers, but there is always lots of room on the sands during the workweek.
