Life is a beach in Rio
Wander near any of the beaches in Rio de Janeiro and you’ll be quickly reminded why expats recently voted their favourite aspects of Rio 1) the beaches, 2) the people, 3) the weather, and 4) the quality of life.
The beaches personify Rio – sun, fun and sport abound at every turn. Whilst the beach promenades are dotted with numerous outdoor multi-gyms, home to rippling muscles, and palm trees form improvised pegs to a network of tightropes. The adjourning cycle path acts like some mass conveyor belt of joggers, skate boarders, skaters, cyclists and walkers.
Beach promenades bustle with sporting activities
Improvised tumbling entertains the more sedentary
Whilst on the water
Local colour abounds
Fut volley raises the bar on more traditional beach volleyball
Beach volleyball dominates
From the early morning work-out
To a mid-week play in the sea
Making sand castles
To a more crowded affair
Or the end of another day
