To the west of Rio is a region with a concentration of high-class hotels and condos and from Barra da Tijuca, a magnificent beach extends along Avenida Semambetiba up to Recreio. Further west is the cove at Prainha, which has summed up the Brazilian surf experience for decades and scene of many contests. Restinga de Marambaia represents 40kms (25mi) of mostly off-limits beachbreaks because of military restrictions followed by Rio’s westernmost surf located on Ilha Grande.
