Visitor Reviews of Barra da Tijuca
“I spent 7 awsome days in Barra and what a beautiful place to surf. I went in January, and whilst I am not the best surfer, the conditions are suitable for everyone: small waves for beginners and big ones for dudes who can ride pipes. You can stay in the water until 8.30pm with no wetsuit and see the sun go down. The locals are OK; I'm from Argentina and did not got any trouble. Very beautifull place to surf. Go and check it out.”
