How to get there

The marina is located in Rio de Janeiro’s Glória neighborhood, less than a 10-minute drive from the Santos Dumont Airport (SDU). From Copacabana, it’s around a 15-minute taxi ride or 25 minutes by Metro—take Line 2 to Glória Station, then walk 10 minutes. Driving is not recommended, since parking is scarce.

Flamengo Beach (Praia do Flamengo)

Less than a 10-minute walk from Glória Marina, Flamengo Beach is another great spot to take in views across Guanabara Bay over toward Niterói and Sugarloaf Mountain. Largely visited by locals, the beach is always much quieter than Copacabana and Ipanema, though (due to pollution) swimming is not recommended.
