- Beaches: "Barra da Tijuca was the site for Rio's 2016 Olympic Village and gained a long-awaited metro station just in time for the games. Shoppers will find it worth the metro ride for the mega-malls that line the wide avenues."
- Best for Beaches Because: Barra da Tijuca stretches for around eight miles, making it easily the city's longest beach.
