Leme Beach in Rio
Leme’s beach is amazing, connecting to Copacabana and Ipanema, it’s their smaller and calmer sister, being a great call if you’re avoiding big crowds. It’s beautiful and houses the Duque de Caxias fort, that we visit on our RioLIVE!, right on top of it’s rock formations.
A cozy place, Leme is preferred by Cariocas for not having too many people around, so you pretty much have a whole beach to yourself!
