Reserva Beach, Rio de Janeiro

4.7
Reserva Beach offers a peaceful setting on white sand lapped by warm blue sea. This beach is popular with surfers and swimmers, but you can also enjoy a day of quiet sunbathing in this secluded spot. The area surrounding the beach is a nature reserve, where you can explore numerous hiking trails though lush vegetation. Along the way stop by a rustic food stall for a taste of authentic Brazilian cuisine, prepared from fresh fish and served hot. The area has several bicycle paths and playgrounds, making this site a favorite of families with small children. Locals recommend several trendy neighborhood restaurants known for their Rodizio-style service, where instead of a menu, an assortment of dishes is brought to the table for picking and choosing.

  • Praia da Reserva is more deserted, for those who do not like excitement. It has kiosks, but prices are higher than on the other beaches around. It's worth the visit.
