Owner description: Avenida Atlantica, with the iconic wavy sidewalk mosaic of Roberto Burle Marx, is ideal for strolling along Copacabana Beach. It is lined with beachside kiosks offering refreshments such as a chilled coconut, and at the far end is a quaint area where fishermen bring their fresh catch ashore.

The little bars are really too expensive and not the friendliest part of the city. On weekends its nice to see families riding bikes as the street is closed to traffic. It's nice but the beach is much better. The area can be a little sketchy at night.

Along the prom there are several kiosks, where you can buy all kind of beverage and food. The kiosks don't look like much, but the kitchens are below the ground, so they can deliver proper... More

It is indeed one great Avenue to stroll along, to run, to skate, to have a beer, to go clubing, to sun bath, to...many more things.

Food is mostly great and reasonably priced considering the area. Great for people watching, jogging, biking, sand sports and food! I will be making another trip!

Though the avenue and the boardwalk are attractive on their own, they become exceptional on Sundays and public holidays when extra lanes are added and the traffic is deviated. Do rent a bike to ride it or take your roller-blades with you. It is an inviting site to do sports while surrounded by natural beauty.
