Live Virtual Tour: Historic Guanabara Bay and the Red Beach of Rio de Janeiro
Red Beach (Praia Vermelha) is one of Rio’s smallest beaches but also one of the most scenic. Tucked inside a protective cove that keeps the waves at bay, the beach is covered in coarse sand with a slightly reddish hue. Flanked by the spires of Morro da Urca and Morro da Babilonia, Vermelha Beach offers ground-level views looking up at Sugarloaf Mountain.
We will visit Vermelha Beach, see typical Carioca beach life, and sample traditional foods eaten at the beach, before heading to the nearby historic residential neighborhood of Urca.
With our tour guide, Neyla, we will explore the history of the neighborhood and end the tour with a magnificent view of historic Guanabara Bay.
