Botafogo beach is a small but very enjoyable beach, located within Guanabara Bay and looking out at Pão de Açúcar. Apart from the clear water and fine sands that characterize almost every beach in Rio de Janeiro, Botafogo beach offers a perfect swell that promotes the practice of water sports. In addition, it has a great view of the boats that leave Marina da Gloria to park on its waters, as well as a bicycle lane -ciclovia in portuguese- and bike services for those who want to rent one.
Football and foot-volley matches are a habit for the fortunate people that enjoy this charming beach playing these popular sports until dusk. As consequence of its centrally location, Botafogo beach is frequently scenery of open air shows and it’s also a perfect meeting point for people coming from the different neighborhoods of Rio.
The easiest way to get to Botafogo Beach for those who travel to Rio is taking the buses and vans leaving with permanent frequencies from almost every part of the city.
