2. Hit the Beach
Brazil has no shortage of beautiful white sand beaches with crashing surf and plenty of all night long entertainment. Prainha Beach is a crescent shaped beach that boasts some of the best surfing spots near Rio. The beach is bordered on each side by rocks and cliffs that add to its breathtaking beauty. If you are traveling with kids, Leblon Beach is ideal as it hosts an area that is exclusive for youngsters. Organized activities and all day sports will keep the wee ones occupied while you soak up the rays and enjoy the warm waters.
