In my opinion it's the best beach in whole Rio. Not overcrowded like Copacabana and Leblon. Really nice view for mountain and favelas.

This beach area doesn't need much words to describe it. If you are in doubt where to stay, just don't. Stay by the beach, walk around the narrow streets and enjoy the best restaurants and bars around. In the sun, just relax and look out for the beautiful people around.

The best of shopping and lifestyle. Then, walk down to the beach and enjoy a coconut on the beach, or a cool beer.

The best beach in rio without a doubt . It's clean, far less crowded than copacabana and much safer. It's in one of the safest area's in rio with some nice restaurant's and shopping all around. Most of the tourists head down to copacabana . One will find a lot more families and nicer crowd in leblon beach .

Leblon is lots of fun. Great beach, restaurants and pubs. Shopping Leblon is the best mall in town. The area around Dias Ferreira street is great to go at night.

At one end of Ipanema, it is more family and sports oriented because it sits in Rio's most affluent neighborhood. Tourists go more to Ipanema and to Copacabana. Leblon is kept a little more authentic. But it can suffers from pollution because of the direction of the bay's current.

I've been to Rio 6 times and only stay in Leblon...why?....because it is the most upscale, safest. and cleanest of the 3 Zonal Sul beach communities in my humble opinion. I have traveled solo on 5 of these occasions and never once felt threatened. I am able to walk back to my hotel from Restaurant Row late at night (with... More

Famous town beach. It is known as a haunt for famous people in Brazil. It has variety "gastronomica" with its restaurants. Also has many leisure options.

Leblon beach is just on the other side of the drainage canal from ipanema, but, really, they are contiguous beaches for all practical purposes. Like Ipenama Beach, I prefer to skip Copacabana...it's overly touristy. Leblon has relatively more locals and more of everything you go to the beaches for in Brasil. Faux Pax: using traditional beach towels. Skip these and... More
