Brazil Club 411:  What’s the most romantically Brazilian way you’d like to spend Valentine’s Day? Perhaps a night flight to Rio? While that might not be in the cards for most of us this week, here's a short list of the most romantic beaches in Rio de Janeiro. Add them to your Brazilian bucket list: they are sure to keep you in the mood for Rhythm and Romance!


Barra de Guaratiba - Guaratiba, Rio de Janeiro

More like Capri or Saint-Tropez than Copacabana, you'll find Barra de Guaratiba nestled into the quiet and cozy coastal village of the same name. Drive west from Zona Sul until the road narrows down to two lanes after Barra da Tijuca and you’ll know you’re close. Romance? This scenic and ‘off the beaten path’ locale was the backdrop for the movie ‘Blame It On Rio’ featuring a young Demi Moore.

Praia Vermelha - Urca, Zona Sul

With the everyday bustle of Rio de Janeiro’s Zona Sul only a few blocks distant, you’ll find Praia Vermelha (‘Red Beach’) perfectly placed in the shadow of Sugarloaf. Taking its name from the wash of color at sunset, this secret spot gives up an almost impossible green-lined vista that will catch your breath and make your heart skip a beat. Always quiet, (except on sunny weekends). Our tip? Kick back with a couple of coconut waters from the kiosk and drink in the view.

Praia de Meio - Paraty, Rio de Janeiro

Nothing says te amo like the hidden treasures to be found along Rio de Janeiro’s exquisite Costa Verde, so-named as the ‘Green Coast’ that boarders the Mata Atlântica rainforest to the water's edge. It’s where you’ll find one of the area’s most beautiful and mesmerizing beaches smack dab in the middle of it all. Praia de Meio (‘Middle Beach’) is ideal for a romantic getaway; with quiet waters, a few well-stocked kiosks to quench your sunny needs and a wide stretch of sand to chill with handpicked tunes and your special someone.
