Neighborhood: Recreio

A bus ride away from the famous sands of Ipanema and Copacabana, this beach neighborhood remains little-visited by tourists. Instead, local surfers flock to Recreio to make the most of the breaks, while the sands remain wonderfully quiet during the week. It's a different story on the weekends, when sunseekers from across Rio head here to appreciate the beautiful beaches and relaxed atmosphere - head here early if you want to bag a prime spot for sunbathing and people-watching. The skateboard park is also a popular attraction.
