Abricó beach, surrounded by a beautiful, poetic landscape, is but a little strip of sand in comparison to all of Rio's coastline.
Perched between mountain and sea, Abricó has the characteristics of an undeveloped beach, with lots of foliage and rocks that make for a great place to relax. Located in Grumari, right after Prainha if you're coming from Barra de Guaratiba, Abricó was chosen by naturists for its private and peaceful location. Abricó became legal (again) for naturists on 1 October 2003 The A.N.A. (Naturist Association of Abricó) is the organization that keeps an eye on the beach, making sure that international naturist norms are observed. The group also sponsors carefully planned activities for its associates, such as games, theme reunions, and excursions.
Is it possible to take public transportation from Copacabana to Abrico Beach?
By bus: The cheapest way to go to Abrico Beach from Copacabana (or in any location near sea on South Zone) is take bus 175 (Barra da Tijuca or Recreio) or S-20 (Recreio) on Atlantica Avenue (except sundays), in Copacabana, (on sundays you can get the buses on Barata Ribeiro street) (from Ipanema you must take the bus on Vieira Souto Avenue or in Leblon, in Delfim Moreira Avenue) and get off in front of Barra Shopping (center), in Barra da Tijuca. Then take the bus 703 (Recreio) and take off in front of Condomínio MARAMAR. Go to the way up side the sea, through Prainha. When go down in Grumari, look to the sea and go left. Abricó beach is behind big stones.
Also lines 749 (Cascadura-Recreio) and 702 (Recreio-Rio das Pedras) go close Maramar condomínio on Macumba's beach.
