In this tour you will have the opportunity to see some Carioca’s hidden places! Pick up at your hotel and drive to Joatinga Beach, a Rio’s lesser known, more hidden beach… perfect for those who look for some tranquility.
The small stretch of white sand of about 300m is hidden in the Joá neighborhood, a small patch of land between São Conrado and Barra da Tijuca. After this visit we keep on Joá Highway by the mountains over the ocean until we reach São Conrado.
We drive up Estrada das Canoas until we reach Vista Chinesa. A charming little Chinese structure placed about 380 meters high in Tijuca National Forest (one of the world’s largest urban forests). It offers one of the most impressive views in Rio.
The lookout point provides visitors breathtaking views of lush green jungle and blue bay. Driving by the winding road back to Barra da Tijuca through Tijuca National Park we reach back Barra da Tijuca and hit the scenic route by the beaches of Barra da Tijuca, Reserva, Recereio dos Bandeirantes, Macumba until we arrive at the picturesque
Prainha (little beach) located in an exotic and quiet setting in a small bay surrounded by lush green hills, which make a great contrast to the blue water and white sandy beach.
It extends for 700 meters… Prainha has some beach kiosks for refreshments, where we can stop for great pictures and coconut water. Then we get the scenic route back to the hotel. End of our services.
