Grumari is a neighborhood in the West Zone of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Grumari is a municipal park and is the only neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro without any residents. Grumari has virgin beaches which have not changed in hundreds of years. It has salt marsh vegetation next to the beach and a rain forest surrounds the hills of the district.

There is a nude beach next to Grumari beach called Abricó beach (Portuguese for Apricot beach). This is the only nudist beach around the city. There are five wild virgin beaches in this neighborhood: Inferno Beach (Hell's beach), Funda beach (Deep Beach), Búzios beach (Whelks beach), Meio's beach (middle's beach) and Perigoso beach (dangerous beach) where one can observe a pristine vegetation.

The word Grumari comes from the ancient South American dialects, the word refers to the tip of a mammal's nipples when feeding their young. In the same way, the beach sticks out onto the ocean feeding the fish.
