BARRA DA TIJUCA BEACH RIO DE JANEIRO

BARRA DA TIJUCA RIO DE JANEIRO BRAZIL

Barra da Tijuca is the longest beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with 18 Km of clear and tropical green water. Barra is frequented by refreshing waves inviting to surfing both for beginners and experienced surfers.

Barra of Tijuca, or simply Barra as locals say is Rio de Janeiro’s youngest neighborhood.  It’s high socioeconomic level turned it into one of the fastest growing areas in the city.

BARRA DA TIJUCA AREA RIO DE JANEIRO

BARRA DA TIJUCA AREA RIO DE JANEIRO

Barra de Tijuca also denominates an administrative region in which we find Barra de Tijuca as a neighbourhood along with some others like: Joá, Itanhangá, Camorim, Vargem pequena, Vargem Grande, Recreio dos Bandeirantes, Grumari.

Sports like Surf, Kite surfing and body boarding are often practiced there, with the chance to learn them in the numerous schools in the area. Championships (national and international) are often held at barra de tijuca many times during the year, also surfing.

You can get to Barra da Tijuca beach in many ways. The majority of buses don’t pass the whole beach extension, so if you want to go by bus, it will leave you on the backstreet and you have to walk a little bit. There are some vans that go to Barra as well, but if you want a safe bet, the best option is to take a cab or rent a car to go to Barra, since it’s a very big place. Vans: they pass through Copacabana beach, Ipanema, Leblon and downtown Rio. Just stick your hand out when they approach you and they’ll pick you up. The buses and vans take less time to get to Barra when they use LINHA AMARELA highway. This will save you about 20 minutes on the road.

An extension of Barra da Tijuca Beach is called Praia do Pepê. This name was given to the beach, cause Pepê was the nickname of a young boy selling beer, mineral water and home made, natural sandwiches at the beach as well as practicing many sports. One of them was hang gliding, from which he died some years ago while flying. As he was very popular, people decided to give his name to the small extension of the beach.  

At the end of Barra da Tijuca is the quarter named Recreio dos Bandeirantes.

After that you have Prainha and Grumari beaches. Their perfect waves made them famous. They are on a biological reserve area, with restricted car parking spaces. Enjoy this between mountains-beauty of the nature on the week-days.
