Close to Praia do Secreto is Prainha. How about taking advantage of that two for one? The place is after Reserva beach and before Grumari. It is also recommended that you travel by car and arrive early, as parking is limited. The beach is quiet and the way there is worth it. In a few days, the water becomes transparent and allows the rehearsal to be splendid. If the idea is to take more photos with green or on an adventure, it is also a great alternative. There, it is possible to surf or go hiking, in addition to registering for social networks.
