Stayed for 4 days nearby and went to the beach everyday. Its one of the nicest in Rio, not that far from the more famous Copacabana/Ipanema beaches.
During the week its really quiet and not many people go there, during weekends it gets more people but it does not really get too crowded as the other places. You also do not get as much vendors offering things while you rest.
You have the typical 'barracas' that rent seats and beach umbrellas to have some shade. They also sell some drinks and food, small things.
Close to there you have a couple of blocks of bars and small shops that sell acai, havaianas and typical brasil stuff.
If you want a quiet and very nice beach experience in Rio, its the place to go.

Barra da Tijuca is a nice and quiet beach close to the most famous beaches from Rio (Like Copabana, Ipanema and Leblon). You can reach there by many transport means in about an hour or less. During weekdays the beach is really quiet and confortable. No sellers around or dangerous people... it's a great place to rest. During weekends it's a little bit more crowdy, anyway, still the best option. It's also really clean.
Maybe you can feel some lack of commodities around, but that's nothing important compared to the benefits.
The little center of the beach has many options to eat, drink or dance... to have fun, during day and night.
As for the sea, it's a little bit strong.. with big waves and many surfers...

This beach goes on forever, not crowed at all a great place to spend the day away from the crowds, bring food, snacks water, there are not alot of restaurants here just a few gas stations, and if you come to rio gas station food is not at the top of your list, but if you would like a little quite time this is the spotto hit

The beach is really nice nad wasn't too crowded and one can run along the paved work ways. I also loved the fact that they have outdoor gyms along the beach. Which makes it easy to work out while on holiday

Barra da Tijuca is not only the beach, but a new way of life in Rio de Janeiro. Many Malls, Restaurants, and all sort of amusements in the beach.
