Barra da Tijuca or simply Barra, unlike other areas of Rio like Ipanema or Copacabana, is more quiet and regardless of its increasing popularity still less crowded. But with several options to eat, grab a drink, go out or shopping as well.
With less people also, the beach feels more spacious, less noisy and the sand cleaner too.
Therefore, it is a good place to stay if you would like to focus on your rest and do less touristing, are traveling with kids or have already visited the most popular sights of Rio.
Moreover, thanks to the Metro the city center is just minutes away in case you are missing the traditional cariocan chaos Rio is so famous for.
