Recreio dos Bandeirantes

Recreio dos Bandeirantes is a quiet neighbourhood located in the Barra da Tijuca region of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Recreio dos Bandeirantes features a beautiful stretch of tranquil beach that is flanked by verdant jungles that sit atop intimidating rocky cliffs. Development of the area began in the 1960’s when affluent citizens from Rio de Janeiro started building homes along the scenic coast to get away from the bustle and crime of the city. Although it is a recent development with no major skyscrapers the area is becoming more popular with tourists looking for peace outside of the city.

  • Surf the massive waves that pound the shores of Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach, where you will find some of Rio de Janeiro's best surfers looking for the perfect wave.
  • Head to the western end of Recreio dos Bandeirantes and enjoy hiking, cycling and other ecotourism activities at the Marapendi Environment Protection Area.
  • Admire more than 8,000 art pieces made by hundreds of artists, including the Jacques Van de Beuque collection at the Museu Casa do Pontal, one of the best new art museums in Rio de Janeiro.

Recreio dos Bandeirantes is located about an hour from Rio’s city centre and can be reached in a number of ways. The Galeão International Airport is the main gateway to Rio de Janeiro and there are shuttle buses that go directly to the city centre. From there you can find bus transport to this area. Many people choose to get there by private or hired car, Recreio dos Bandeirantes is well connected to Rio by a network of motorways. The area around the beach is perfect for exploring on foot or on hired motorbike.
