Beaches

City beaches aren’t the cleanest (though that doesn’t stop local surfers taking to the waves). Your best bet is to head south, but even then you’ll find that the area’s broad, flat beaches are best for soccer games, and it takes kilometers for the water to lose the muddy color of the river outflow. Praia dos Milionários (7km) has some barracas (food stalls) and is popular with locals.
