Leme Beach - Must Visit Beaches in Rio | Just Fly Business

According to the latest statistics from the Office for National Statistics, British citizens made a staggering total of 12 million visits abroad last year. This is a trend that is set to continue for the foreseeable future, with UK consumers spending freely despite the uncertainties surrounding BREXIT and the geopolitical climate.

For those who are already planning their summer holidays, a trip to Rio should be high on your list of favourites. A stunning beach location with an array of iconic landmarks, this represents an excellent travel experience for individuals, couples and families alike.

We thought we’d help by showing you three of the most alluring beaches that you should check out during your luxury or business holiday to Rio:

1. The Copacabana Beach, Rio

Copacabana Beach Rio

While Copacabana may be the name of Barry Manilow’s signature (and incredibly catchy) song, it is also one of Rio’s most striking, Atlantic Ocean-facing beaches. Iconic and populous in equal measure, it covers a two-mile stretch of sun-kissed coastline, while offering stunning views of towering mountains and deep, turquoise waters.

Ideal for a morning stroll for the most dedicated sun-worshippers, the Copacabana Beach is also a thriving hub of land-based activity including football, volleyball and carefree dance parties.

In short, it has earned its status as Rio’s most iconic and popular beach, drawing millions of visitors from across the globe on an annual basis.

2. Ipanema Beach, Rio

Ipanema Beach Rio

Just beyond the golden sands of the Copacabana, you will find the slightly smaller but decidedly more upscale Ipanema Beach. A popular hangout among younger visitors and adults, it has emerged as the go-to destination for image conscious locals and travellers with a distinct taste for the high-life.

As a result of this, and thanks in part to the upper-class nature of the locals, the beach is littered with stalls selling endless merchandise, from bathing suits and towels and cold bears and even coconuts.

While this is not for everyone, it shares similar views to the Copacabana Beach while also offering a slightly more immersive experience.

3. Prainha Beach, Rio

Prainha Beach Rio

And now, as Monty Python would say, for something completely different. While the first two beaches listed here are extremely tourism-centric and busy during the summer months, Prainha Beach sits further along the coastline and is far-removed from such hustle and bustle. It is idyllic and blissfully quiet, while this beautiful, crescent-shaped beach is also flanked by greenery and a rainforest-covered, mountainous landscape.

With white sands and endless waves of deep, blue water lapping against the shore, the destination remains one of Rio’ best-kept secrets and remains a must-visit beach during your stay.

It is particularly popular among families, while surfers and other water sports enthusiasts also love nothing more than to ride the waves beneath the baking sun.
