by HardCore Sports Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
Price Not Available

Spend a day exploring the untouched sands of Rio's wild beaches as you follow an expert guide on ocean-front trails leading to stunning viewpoints. Visit 5 different beaches, stopping off to snap photos of rocky headlands and crystal-clear waters flanked by crescents of golden sand.

Join your guide in Rio, where convenient pick-up at your hotel kicks off your day's adventure. As you drive, chat about the area's best strips of sand and often-overlooked beaches. When you arrive at the trail, grab a water bottle and hit the path for your quick hike towards Pedra de Tartaruga, or Turtle Rock.

From the top of this dramatic formation, take in sweeping views of the untouched beaches at Grumari. Look for rock climbers rappelling down cliff faces and boats bobbing in the distance, and then continue on to get closer looks at the beaches of Buzios, Perigoso, Meio Funda, and Inferno. Accessible only by foot or boat, these pristine beaches offer a chance to beat the crowds and soak up some time on the sand with only the sound of waves to interrupt your train of thought.
