Walking, running or bike riding along Leblon and Ipanema beach is so much fun, I never get tired of it. During the summer and especially during carnival everyone on the beach watches the sunset and when the sun finally sets everybody cheers.

Cleanest beach I saw in Rio and less crowded, while Copacabana and Ipanema are full of people. Also the safest area in Rio

The least crowded of the big 3 Rio beaches. Far fewer hotels down here. Higher prices than the rest of the beaches, but very nice. We loved it. Stay at the Marina Suites hotel if you need a hotel. Great Boutique hotel on the beach.

This beach is less popular than Copacabana or Ipanema, but basically they are the same. You can feel the Atlantic Ocean in here too. If you want to avoid crowd, perfect beach for you.

One of the cleanest and quiet beaches in Rio, its a nice beach to relax and enjoy while still having the entire Leblon infrastructure at your disposal. Easy to reach and to move, its a nice place to go for friends and family but tends to be a very windy beach.

Beautiful beach, clean, safe, maybe even tranquil. People sunning, playing volleyball, riding bikes. This is in the south zone, the most desirable area in Rio. This is the most affluent neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro. The city beaches from east to west: Leme, Copacabana, Arpoador, Ipanema, Leblon, San Conrado, Bara, and Recreio.

Although temperature was 28 degrees in this month of July the tides were considerably high due to the windy weather at Leblon beach. It is not safe for children to come close as the waves might take them into the ocean. Beautiful scenes.... Enjoy

All Rio's city beaches are great, from east to west Leme, Copacabana, Arpoador, Ipanema, Leblon, Sao Conrado, Barra, and Recreio. Every beach has a different vibe though. Leblon is more known as an upper middle class beach for local Zona Sul people that care more about a pleasant time with friends and family than showing off. Less tourists, more a... More
