Brazil beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world! Brazil boasts 7,000 miles or 8,000 kilometers of coastline and several thousand beaches from which to choose, so it's no wonder that locals and tourists alike flock to these coastal areas to relax and soak up the sun.
The most popular beaches in Brazil are ones you may have heard of already or perhaps a few you've not heard of yet. The ones we'll list here are the ones most frequented by local people and visitors each year.
These beaches are considered some of the most beautiful in Brazil.
You may have to hike, swim, walk, or take a buggy, horse, or car to reach these beaches, but the scenery and the seclusion is well worth the effort!
Please enjoy this video by our Portuguese teacher Luciana who filmed these Brazil beach tips especially for those who are new to visiting the beach in Brazil.

Generally these flags are bright red. Please respect the safety flags and do not swim when the flags are posted.

In 2010, hundreds of baby penguins washed up on the beach shores of Rio de Janeiro, which is more than ever encountered in previous years. Scientists are speculating that possibly the lack of food is forcing the penguins to further afield to find sustenance and in doing so, they are caught up in the ocean's stronger currents and unable to swim hard enough to escape. This situation is especially problematic for baby penguins.
Water pollution is a consistent threat to all bodies of water across the world and Brazil is no different. Some of the beach areas in Brazil have taken measures to keep the water and the stretches of sandy beach unpolluted and clean by hiring officers who patrol the beach to enforce proper garbage disposal.
