Praia do Leme - Rio de Janeiro
Praia do Leme

The name Leme comes from the rock formation that encloses the beach. The boardwalk in Portuguese stone was created by the landscaper Burle Marx, in the 70s, with the typical carioca design of the waves of the sea.

The beach ends at Morro do Leme, In the neighborhood of Leme there are also other military structures: Forte da Ponta da Vigia, Forte da Ponta do Ring, and Forte Guanabara.

the intense urban occupation  is reflected in the quality of the beaches, which is why it is recommended to check the sea conditions on the INEA Instituto Estadual do Meio Ambiente website, which has a complete survey on the situation of the water and sand on the beach.
