Enjoy the beach without getting wet

Sun worshipers who don’t want to get wet or overly sandy can take refuge at the small kiosks that line Rio’s city beaches. Here, you grab a chair, a bite, and a beer, and work on your tan while taking in the jagged coastline and shimmering sea. The kiosks, which range from funky shacks to modern steel-and-glass structures, are perfect for a quick lunch of crepes, sandwiches, or fish patties covered in a mysterious but delicious spicy sauce. While the beaches are normally deserted after dark, you’ll find a good crowd gathered at these well-lit sidewalk stands in the evenings. Copacabana's Deck Zero Nove kiosk is popular with travelers.
