Barra da Tijuca or simply Barra (pronounced Ba-ha) is the longest beach in Rio de Janeiro, with 18 km or 11 miles of clean and tropical blue water with untouched and still pristine stretches of white sand. The sunset is beautiful, especially in the winter.
Barra is a combination of ideal beach conditions with numerous good restaurants and bars. You will find several "barracas" (in portuguese) or kiosks on the beach selling coconut milk, caipirinha (like margaritas but made with sugar cane rum) and food. It's quiet on week days and crazy on hot summer weekends from December to March.
Barra introduced a new concept of life in the country. It is characterized by big luxury complexes or condominiums with an incredible leisure infrastructure (sports courts, pools, lakes, gyms, boats to the beach, restaurants, pharmacy and convenience store, etc...).for exclusive use of its residents and guests offering them a complete life without the need of having to leave the complex.
