Arpoador is a great place to have a beautiful view of Ipanema Beach and take a lot of pictures! I recommend you to see the sunset there!

Beautiful spot to watch the sunset. Get there early to secure a spot and watch as the sun sets over Ipanema and Leblon! Its busy but worth the crowds.

Really nice view of Zona Sul copacaba , ipanema and Leblon. Family oriented, the rock forms a natural pool. A lot of kids learn to swim close to the rock
