A nude beach is next to Grumari beach called Abricó beach (Portuguese for Apricot beach). It is the only nude beach around the city. Five virgin beaches with pristine vegetation are 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).

The word Grumari comes from ancient South American dialects.[clarification needed] the word refers to the tip of a mammal's nipples. In the same way, the beach sticks out onto the ocean, "feeding" the fish.[1]
