Budget beach destination near Río De Janeiro, Brazil

I am finishing my RTW trip in Río de Janeiro in Brazil, and want to lie on a beach and relax before going home for Christmas. Any suggestions on where to go? I have 2 weeks, so I can travel from RdJ if necessary. I will also have hardly any budget left, so somewhere economical is important!

    I agree with Claus. I went to Ilha Grande when I was in Rio and it was beautiful! Way better in my opinion than any beach you will find on the mainland. I stayed at Pousada Casablanca and it was very affordable, cute, and the free breakfast is out of this world. The website is here: http://www.casablancapousada.com.br/. Also if you can plan to spend a little extra cash I highly recommend doing an Eco Adventure tour. Gigi the guide lives on the island and is so nice and does a wonderful job catering to your needs. Website is here for reference: http://www.overde.com/. You can email her if you are wondering how to get there from Rio and she will tell you your options. Good luck!

    Besides the obvious (Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon) I found that Praia do Forte is a great beach http://goo.gl/2C4DeU

    Ilha Grande will be the most obvious place for you.

    It's fairly close to Rio de Janeiro and it's popular with backpackers so it has a lot of accomodation in the cheaper range.

    Buzios and Paraty could be options too but they are generally a little more expensive than Ilha Grande.
