"São Conrado" Rio de Janeiro Things to Do Tip by MM212
Rio de Janeiro Things to Do: 1,159 reviews and 1,802 photos
Officially outside the city limits, São Conrado is only separated from Rio de Janeiro's Leblon district by the twin peaks of Morro Dois Irmãos. The quiet residential neighbourhood is graced with a beautiful and isolated beach where hang gliders land from a nearby towering peak. The beach is said to get crowded on weekends, but during the week when I visited, it was very empty as seen in the photos, the reason for which I enjoyed this beach tremendously more than Ipanema or Copacabana. The breathtaking views of the mountains all around add to its charm. When I was here, I intended to try hang gliding, but due to high winds, it was not possible.
