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 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.

Here is the largest convention center in Latin America, “Rio Centro”. The largest shopping mall too, “Barra Shopping”, with over 650 shops, and its own monorail system. Instead of supermarkets you have hypermarkets, with thousands of square feet. Add theme parks, -like “Rio Water Planet”, also the biggest water theme park in Latin America-, natural reserves with wild birds and alligators,  preserved beaches with limited access to cars, and you start to get an idea of the possibilities.

BARRA DA TIJUCA BEACH RIO DE JANEIRO

BARRA DA TIJUCA BEACH RIO DE JANEIRO

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.

During the technical trainnings of the Escolas the Samba during december, january and february right up to Carnival time. The Samba Schools have a time table for their rehearsals at Sambodromo during the weekends prior to Carnival. The show is really amazing (it’s like carnival but without the costumes) because you can get pretty close to the action, and because it’s free.

At the four days of Carnival if you have purchased your tickets. If you haven’t purchased your tickets it’s very likely you can still get in due to the resellers frenetic activity. Just be carefull not to get hazzled!

You can go to Sambodromo in different ways:

Taxis will take you to right to the sector of the Sambodromo in which you have purchased your tickets.

You can also go by metro. The metro station you should get off if you are going to the even sections (sectors 2, 4, 6) of the Sambodromo is Praça Onze. From that station the Sambodromo is only 3 blocks away.

The metro station you should get off if you are going to the odds sections of the Sambodromo (sectors 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13) is Central. From that station the Sambodromo is only 700 meters away.

These neigbhourhoods of the southern part of Rio have their own metro station in which you can catch the metro: Copacabana, Botafogo and Flamengo. From Ipanema, Leblon you have to first catch the metro bus that takes you to the Copacabana metro station.

SAMBODROME CARNIVAL 2009 RIO DE JANEIRO

SAMBODROME CARNIVAL 2009 RIO DE JANEIRO

So what really goes on at Sambodromo during the four days of Carnival?

It’s a competition between the “Escolas de Samba” of Rio de Janeiro to see who is the champion of the year.

The Escolas are divided into 6 categories. In each category you will find 12 Escolas (Samba Schools). The Escolas of the “Grupo Especial” and the “Grupo A” are the ones that actually parade in the 4 days of Carnival at Sambodromo (Group A, the first two days, and the Special Gruop in the last two days), because they are considered to be the finest.

There are a group of judges that analize the Escolas in more than 40 aspects to decide who gets the glory and who gets thrown out of the Special Group, so the competition is intense.

You can actually parade at the 4 days of Carnival with a costume. There are a number of companies that will arrange that for you. You can also contact the Escolas the Samba yourself.

ARPOADOR RIO DE JANEIRO

ARPOADOR RIO DE JANEIRO

At the vertix, where the coasts of Copacabana and Ipanema meet, we find two beaches, a particular rock formation, and a pretty park.

The beaches are called “Praia do Diabo” (Do Diabo Beach), and “Praia do Arpoador” (Arpoador Beach), the rock is called “Pedra do Arpoador” (Arpoador Rock) , and the Park “Parque Garota de Ipanema” (Girl from Ipanema Park).

Arpoador Stone, Rio de Janeiro, is a rock formation that comes out directly from the Atlantic Ocean.

Whale hunting with harpoons was very common at this area. It was done some time ago by the indians, and continued by the Portuguese.

From this historical fact derives the name “Pedra do Arpoador”, in english (harpooner’s rock, Rio de Janeiro).

ARPOADOR STONE RIO DE JANEIRO

ARPOADOR STONE RIO DE JANEIRO

Arpoador Rock, Rio de Janeiro gives it’s name to Arpoador beach. The beach is on the right side of the rock (if we are standing on it looking at the sea). On the left side of the rock we have do Diabo beach.

ARPOADOR BEACH RIO DE JANEIRO

ARPOADOR BEACH RIO DE JANEIRO

Arpoador beach, Rio de Janeiro, occupies the first 800 meters of a coastline that includes Ipanema and Leblon.

Arpoador beach is a great viewpoint of the beaches of Ipanema y Leblon.

It’s a tranquil and beautyfulll beach commonly visited by families.

It’s also a very important surfing spot of the city of Rio de Janeiro.

DO DIABO BEACH ARPOADOR AREA RIO DE JANEIRO

Praia do Diabo beach is situated between Copacabana and Ipanema. Despite being very small it has it’s own coastline in front, and wide open, to the sea. This particularity makes it very suitable for surfing.

You enter Do Diabo beach through a small green park where you can enjoy a relaxing atmosphere and freezing cocounut water.

ARPOADOR GIRL FROM IPANEMA PARK RIO DE JANEIRO

ARPOADOR GIRL FROM IPANEMA PARK RIO DE JANEIRO

Parque Garota de Ipanema, or Girl from Ipanema Park, Rio de Janeiro, is situated in front of do Diabo and Arpoador beaches, between Av. Francisco Bhering and Francisco Otaviano Street. This green Park consists of an area de 2,58 hectares, and can be visited on a daily basis from 6 am to 7 pm.

It’s a priviledged space for paisagism and the enjoyment of vegetation. It’s also a great sporting practice area, with several sports courts, such as a skate rink and rollerblading area. It also has a children playground area.

In 1994, Girl from Ipanema Park became part of the Ambiental Protection Area of Copacabana and Arpoador. Due to this proclamation, activities that affect the local environment are not allowed.
