Soon, the world will descend on Brazil. In 2014, the FIFA World Cup will take place in the country most renowned for football. Two years after that, the Olympics will be the highlight. But, one needn’t wait so long to bask in the beauty of Brazil’s beautiful beaches.
One of the world’s most captivating places, Brazil is South America’s giant, a dazzling country of powdery white-sand beaches, pristine rain forests and wild, rhythm-filled metropolises. Brazil’s attractions extend from enchanting, frozen-in-time colonial towns to dramatic landscapes of red-rock canyons, thundering waterfalls and idyllic tropical islands. Add to that, Brazil’s biodiversity: legendary in scope, its diverse ecosystems boast the greatest collection of plant and animal species found anywhere on earth.
Brazil’s most famous celebration, Carnaval, storms though the country’s cities and towns with hip-shaking samba and frevo, dazzling costumes and carefree joie de vivre, but Brazilians hardly regulate their passion for revelry to a few weeks of the year. Wherever there’s music, that carefree lust for life tends to appear – whether dancing with Cariocas at Rio’s atmospheric samba clubs or following powerful drumbeats through the streets of Salvador. There’s the dancehall forró of the Northeast, twirling carimbó of the Amazon, scratch-skilled DJs of São Paulo and an endless variety of regional sounds that extends from the back-country sertanejo to reggae-loving Maranhão.
With so much going for them, it’s no wonder that Brazilians say ‘Deus e Brasileiro’ (God is Brazilian). How else to explain the treasure chest of natural and cultural riches sprinkled all across the country?
Brazil beaches present a magnificent landscape piquing the curiosity of millions. The best beaches in Brazil span over 8,000 miles of shoreline, providing a welcome avenue for escaping large, industrial cities, sprawling urban centers, and the bustle of everyday life. For Brazilians, beaches are an integral part of culture and visiting, especially on weekends. Beach-going is one of the top ways to relax and enjoy life with family and friends. Brazil beach photos inspire and entice, with the visions themselves enough to draw people across the world to experience their resonating natural beauty.

Copacabana Beach
Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro is one of the Brazil’s most popular and most well-known beaches by far. While this is not the place to go if you want peace and quiet, it is an ideal beach to see and be seen. There are lots of fun things to do on and around Copacabana, too, including beach volleyball, beach bars and great nightlife, and an array of restaurants. There are many hotels in the Copacabana Beach neighborhood if you want to stay nearby.

Ipanema Beach
Rio’s beaches are famous as much for their boisterous energy, as for their natural beauty and it’s no wonder The Travel Channel listed Ipanema as the sexiest beach in the world.
Glamorous Ipanema is the sister beach to Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro. Along with Copacabana, Ipanema Beach is home to the famous and extremely tiny Brazilian string bikini. Much like Copacabana as well, Ipanema is more than a beach and has many hotels, restaurants, and happening nightlife spots along the beach and in the surrounding neighborhood.

Pig’s Bay (Baía dos Porcos), Fernando de Noronha
Fernando de Noronha has all the elements of paradise. A meandering, volcanic, archipelago spanning almost 200 miles in the northeastern region, Pig’s Bay is one of three incredible Brazil beaches in the immediate vicinity. The surrounding environment is nothing short of gorgeous and, with excellent swimming conditions, is a great place for sea-lovers.

Jericoacoará, Ceara state
A hotspot for kitesurfing and windsurfing, Jericoacoara, to the west of Fortaleza, is a place where beaches extend as far as sunsets go. With an extensively preserved natural ecosystem, Jericoacoara is characterized by massive dunes, crystal-clear lakes, calm sea waves, and a national park.

Caraiva, Bahia
Caraiva is another of the most beautiful beaches in the country, often included in the best of Brazil beach photos. This mostly deserted stretch of beach is busiest in summer and even then fairly isolated. Walk a day in either direction and enjoy miles of beach, take in the shade of swaying almond trees, and swim along a shore of soft sand and sturdy surf.

Bonete, State of Sao Paulo
Bonete is one of the best beaches in Brazil within Sao Paulo state. With walk-in access for six miles through a coastal forest alongside waterfalls, the route is almost as good as the beach itself. Arrive to golden-hued sand and brilliant blue sea flanked by verdant forest and bask in the beauty before diving in for a swim, or taking on the waves via surfing. Enjoy camping or simple lodging options if leaving is as hard as most say it is.

Arpoador, Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro
Brazil beach photos show Arpoador as a well-loved extension of Ipanema. The cliffs at the end are both visually delightful and easy to climb for a beautiful view below. Walk the wood stairs down and hit the golden sand and clear water for bathing, body-boarding, and surfing. Or, dive in at night under the light of the beach lamps.
