FABIO'S REVIEW

Green-Visiting

One of the top attractions in Rio, along with the Corcovado (and its giant Christ statue) and the Copacabana/Ipanema beach combo. The views are stunning, the granite peak is a natural wonder in itself, and everything is made even funnier by cute little monkeys begging for food.

1. PRAIA VERMELHA (RED BEACH)

The Red Beach is located in the neighborhood of Urca, in the city of Rio de Janeiro. In its sands, crystals of pomegranate can be seen: it is called Red Beach because the sand becomes reddish as the sun reflects on the red and pink crystals.
