10 Best Beaches in Brazil

Country’s Motto: Order and Progress

Braaaazil, the land of mountains, islands, beaches and beautiful people. Brazil is one of the most popular destinations in the world. It has a along history, rich culture and tradition. If you are from The United States and Canada, you no longer need a VISA to visit Brazil.

Below are the best beaches in Brazil. If you think we missed one, let us know in the comments section.

#1 Copacabana Beach – Rio de Janeiro

This world class beach is one of the best beach in the world. Copacabana attracts tourists from all over the world. The beach is about 4.5 KM and is one of the most important sites in Rio (same say the most important). Huge beach with lots of kiosks, cafes, hotels, and much, much more along the beach. Keep all your valuables at your hotels or airbnb’s though because this beach is very crowded and you might get pick pocketed. Is it safe? Yes, but just be careful with your belongings. Also do not go at night, definitely not safe at night. Definitely a MUST visit.

#2 Ipanema Beach – Rio de Janeiro

Many say that Ipanema beach is the nicest beach in all of Rio, even nicer than Copacabana. It is more relaxed and not as overcrowded as Copa (yes there are lots of people but manageable), and it has clean water, good infrastructure and great vibes. Because the water is cold, and waves are high, we do not recommend you swim but surf here instead. Great sunsets and definitely a top 5 beach in Brazil.

#3 Jericoacoara


Recognized as one of the top 10 beaches in the world by The Washington Post, Jericoacoara is our top 3 is beach one this list. The magnificent beach is famous for its water activities such as board surfing, kite surfing, and more. It is a fun beach destination with more of a local vibe than the first two beach listed above.

4# Lençóis Maranhenses, Maranhão

Lençóis Maranhenses, Maranhão

Lençóis is not like your typical beach, It is in fact a National Park! But this place is so beautiful… so unique and interesting that we had to include it in the top 5.

Galés Beach, Maragogi

Another special place, coral reefs as far as the eye can see. This is one of the most beautiful sights you will ever see in your life. Natural pools, Coconut palms and a plethora of eateries to choose from, this massive beach has a lot to offer. The sand is not quite as good as the options above but this beach is nice and the natural pools compensate for any cons.

6# Gonzaga beach (Santos) Beach

This beach has soft beautiful sand, some of the best in Brazil. The waters are calm and beautiful, but keep in mind that it gets hot here, so I recommend you bring a hat and a bottle of water if need. It is a fun place to be; expect to see people playing beach volleyball, walking their top, and all the fun beach activities you can expect.

7# Praia do Forno (Oven’s Beach)

My friend who went to this beach said “this is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in my life“.
