Imagine a little paradise ... This is Grumari. It is a small paradisiacal beach in Rio, surrounded by green, hidden behind hills. To get there it is good to rent a car because this place is well after Copacabana. But it's beautiful.

West side of Rio de Janeir, after Barra da Tijuca area (Olimpic Games area) you will get on a nice Coastal road to Grumari. Nice natural area, great beaches and amazing views.

Worth the trip, abit far to go if you're coming from zona Sul. Mostly locals there, definitely cleaner if you compare with Copacabana for example, where they have the sewage going straight into the ocean. Give it a try if you have the time. Make...More

Not sure if this is too late but we got a bus to Barra Sul as it was cheaper due to the distance and then got a taxi from there. The taxi agree to pick us up from the beach at a certain time later on.
