Brazil is a captivating and diverse country, but one of its main attractions is its breathtaking coastline – all 7,491km of it. From Rio de Janeiro’s iconic oceanfront to the wild shores of Florianópolis, there is something for everyone. Here, we have shared with you five of our favourite beach holidays in Brazil:
1. Rio de Janeiro
Most people travelling to Brazil will spend at least a few days in Rio de Janeiro, exploring the city’s galleries, gardens and museums, climbing Corcovado Mountain, trying some samba and experiencing its beaches. The sight of those towering skyscrapers meeting the sandy bays is remarkable.
We recommend staying in a hotel that overlooks one of the city’s best-known beaches: Copacabana, Ipanema or Leblon. One of our favourites is the Philippe Starck-designed Fasano in the upscale Zona Sul, whose rooftop infinity pool has a view of Ipanema’s sweep of golden sand. However, for clients who would prefer to stay alongside the famous Copacabana, we suggest the chic and sophisticated Emiliano Rio.
