Fodor's Expert Review Praia do Flamengo
This small curved beach with a terrific view of Sugar Loaf is much busier earlier 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 dirty) water. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: walking.
