A Fantastic Place to Spend Unforgettable Vacations by the Beach
Considering the most important resort of Brazil, Rio de Janeiro could not be something less than a fantastic place for you to enjoy your vacations. Rio offers luxurious facilities for travelers, while the blessed coastline is ideal for several water activities, except for swimming and sunbathing. Below are listed only a few of the most famous beaches of the area, where vacationers can relax and have fun.

Certainly, Copacabana is the most popular beach of the country (maybe of the world!), with 4 km of sandy beach and countless facilities, such as hotels, bars, restaurants and other shops. Ideal for swimming, sunbathing, water-sporting and walking on the paved coast street, Copacabana still remains an absolute experience for millions of tourists annually. It is also about a historic place, since there are old forts at both ends of the beach, which were built in the past centuries. This famous beach is located near another popular place, the Ipanema beach, which is known for its elegant development and its social life. Up-down, it is about a similar to Copacabana beach, with sand and hotels, restaurants, bars, etc, but with only difference that it attracts more high society beachgoers. Other beautiful beaches are the Leblon Beach, an even more elegant bay due to the rich guests and inhabitants, the Arpoador Beach, where a perfect sunshine can be admired, the Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach, a less crowded place with idyllic scenery and the Joa Beach (Joatinga), a totally piratical landscape full of palm trees. For more special options, there is the Prainha Beach with rocks, high cliffs and sand as well; ideal for surfers, while the Praia do Abricó is the only beach in the city that allows nudism to be practiced.

It might be difficult to choose which beach is the best for you to go to, since almost all of them pride in having unequalled beauties. It is up to you to weigh your needs and find the most appropriate ones that suit your preferences and mood. After all, whichever you select, it could become a sublime oasis for you!
