Why locals love it

Enjoy a paradise in the first hours of the day while swimming or practicing outdoor sports. Praia Vermelha is located within a military area, so it's very safe. It's a great way to exercise and start your day. The sea is very calm and the beach is small, good for children too.

Why you should visit it

It's such a outstanding beach, with the Sugar Loaf just on your feets and unbelievably clear water. Although it's inside the bay, the ones who know the inside scoop are aware that it’s one of the cleanest beaches in town, so don't worry. It's perfect for outdoor sports such as stand up paddle or kayak.

Special tip

Get there early because after 11am it will be crowded and sometimes, dirty.
