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.

We crossed this avenue every morning to get to the beach. It can get quite crowded with traffic at peak hours. It is bicycle friendly (It has a bike lane) and on sundays a part of it gets closed for people to walk, skate, ride bikes, etc.)

As you ride through by bus (very good and safe), taxi, car, or just walking it is quite a dramatic site, the horizon loaded with that unusual geography, just makes you think in the powers of god

Majestic stroll on few beaches - Leme, Copacabana and Ipanema, offering fantastic views to the amazing coast line, accommodating good quality beach and classical restaurants and bars all through its length. Life never sleeps here - you may see people walking all through the night. Even though I read many security precautions we never experienced any problem. A place, catering... More

You can enjoy a warm Sunday morning by walking along the street. It is very quiet and it is full of stands where you can buy a juice of fresh fruit or also drink milk of green coco directly from the coconut!
