Rio de Janeiro Sights

Praia do Flamengo

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

This small curved beach with a terrific view of Sugar Loaf is much busier from 5 to 7 in the morning than on a sunny afternoon. That's because Flamengo Beach is a great place to go for a walk, jog, run, or stroll, but not such a great place for a dip in the (usually brown) water. Vying with the beach for the attention of locals is Porcão Rio's, a not-to-be-missed churrascaria. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: walking.
