Guaratiba's wild beaches tour

This tour starts early, as we need to drive more than 50km to reach Guaratiba's neighborhood, a piece of Rio de Janeiro that reminds a calm and remote fishers' village. It is home to the most beautiful beches of the city, away from the crowds and accessible only by a long hikking or eventually, depending on sea conditions, by private boats.

After more than 40 min trekking, we will stop at Periogo beach, a paradise beach with cristaline waters and far from the crowds. We will go to the top of Turtle stone, from where we have amazing views of this paradise. We will stop for some snacks/lunch here.

Our trip continues to Meia's and Funda's beach, another beautiful beaches away from anything that could remind that you are in the middle of one of the biggest metropolis of Latin America.

Back to Guaratiba, you are invited for trying the local food, I would suggest some fresh seafood or just order an açaí while enjoying the view to Marambaia's natural reserve.

Marcos Serrao is a true bike activist, associate member of Transporte Ativo organization, with whom he has published two mobile apps for Android devices. The 2015 crisis was just the push we needed to go for our own business and to work with my passions. Together with Gabriel Navarro, Jacqueline Lobo and Ricardo Carramillo, we created some tours gathering what Rio has the best to offer: cycling towards our beautiful sea-side bike-paths, immersing yourself in a hike at Rio's lush forest and getting to know genuine places. You will experience a much more authentic Rio and feel so many nuances that would simply be missed on a conventional sightseeing vehicle tour. We hope that you enjoy Rio as much as we do!
