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

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.
