Lopes Mendes, Rio de JaneiroDown at the Copacabana there’ll be beach volleyball, and quite probably not much space to stretch out. If you want to find a slightly quieter beach, it would be waste not to come all this way and not explore the Rio coast. To reach Lopes Mendes, you’ll need to hire a car or get the bus from Rio to the city of Angra dos Reis then take the ferry to Ilha Grande. It still requires another ferry, a taxi-boat and a walk, but it’s worth it. 7. Praia do Espelho, Trancoso, BahiaOn the beautiful Bahian coast, Praia Mirror just has to go on the list. No wonder it is called the Beach Mirror: the clear waters reflect the beauty of the place.
