Sao Conrado Beach (Praia de Sao Conrado) Tours

star-3.5
2 Reviews
Sao Conrado Beach (Praia de Sao Conrado)
Whether you’re looking for the surf, the golden sands or to soar in the skies above, visiting Sao Conrado Beach (Praia de São Conrado) is a highlight of Rio de Janeiro. Here in this affluent, oceanfront neighborhood that’s sometimes called Praia Pepino, visitors will find an eclectic combo of people, many of whom are surfers or paragliders. The juxtaposition of social classes is evident out on the streets—yet everyone seems to equally enjoy the combo of sunshine and surf.

When strolling the sands of Sao Conrado, be sure to look up and scan the skies for hangliders circling above. The beach is a popular landing spot for groups of paragliders and hangliders, most of whom have launched from the slopes of neighboring Pedra Bonita. To get a birds-eye view for yourself—but keep your feet back on land—a strenuous trail climbs 2,500 feet up towering Pedra da Gávea. This stoic sentinel and oceanfront rock is a classic Rio landmark, though the round-trip climb can take a whole day—even for seasoned hikers.

Practical Info

Sao Conrado Beach is located between Leblon and neighboring Barra de Tijuca. While it’s common to see surfers out in the waves, the water quality is poor, and since the currents can often be very strong it’s best just to stay on shore.
Address: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
