The beach, the praja, is that of the neighbourhood of Barra da Tijuca, a neighbourhood in the west of Rio de Janeiro, which boasts of having the longest beach in the city. Of course 15 kilometers of sand is too much for a beach.
The beach with its fine white sand is one of those most frequented by Sufis and kiters, such as by bodyboarders, who will find much to enjoy. Of course as the wind rises, it is necessary to organize your stay on the beach. Not only sports, but also everything that revolves around the ball can be doen there and there are so many people who walk or cycle along the bike path that borders the beach.
