Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Barra da Tijuca's expansive 11-mile stretch of coastline and adjacent shopping center, known to Cariocasas as "Barra," is popular among locals.
Recent travelers say it has a more relaxed environment than the sands at Copacabana and Ipanema. Visitors enjoy the clean waters, as well as its ideal conditions for water sports like windsurfing and bodyboarding. Along the shore, you'll find plenty of inexpensive shops, bars, clubs and restaurants, as well as kiosks selling coconut water.
