The best beaches in Rio are further south down the cost. Basically the further south the less people and the nicer the beach, beginning with Barra, Recreio, Pontal, Macumba, Prainha, and Gumari.

Leblon is a little more peaceful and quiet and suitable for families than Ipanema. Sometimes, Ipanema can get a bit crazy, especially on Saturday's with beautiful weather. I also got the vibe that Leblon was a bit more safe than Ipanema. You can never beat the views and atmosphere from the beach.

Leblon beach is much nicer than Copacabana beach. This beach is very clean, and has a lot of "green" spots.

I love the Leblon Beach because it is less crowded than Copa Cabana but has the same qualities. The atmosphere is great, people are lovely as only Cariocas can be. Pure fun!

This beach is nice, clean, not too many folks. Folks surf here , was nice to see. One night it rained. In the morning, the waves on beach were strong. We managed to swim in this water for one day though.

A nice quieter beach with all the facilities of the other two. A good starting point for a long walk to include its two neighbours.

Leblon is a beautiful beach. This is the place where the wealthiest "cariocas" live, just in front of the beach. It is nice to walk on the beach and appreciate one of the best views in Rio.

Leblon is the nicest of the three neighborhoods, Copa, Ipanema and Leblon. Beach is the same beach as Ipanema, just the south half. Some decent shopping a few streets in, along with some decent restaurants and cafes.

Neighborhood Profile
Leblon
In addition to being one of the most upscale neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming, elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some places open all night). One of the best places to visit is the beach, located under the impressive “Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a pleasant place to relax and admire the local beauty.
