Praia do Leme, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil — by Paula Dias Moraes
Praia do Leme, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - I have been living in Rio for 1 year now and this is the best beach around. Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana are packed with people, we are almost touching each other on these beaches. In Leme it is rare to feel like it is crowded, there is a lot of space and it is a beautiful place.

Every year since I was very small, my family and I have been holidaying in Carvoeiro in the Algarve, so that has very fond memories for me. My uncle has a villa there, so for several years we stayed there. We love a beach called Caneiros and often go to a fish restaurant called Rei das Praias , which does great food – they show you the fish before they cook it. (Pixie Lott)
