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.

Wake up at the crack of dawn and go for a run or walk along the Avenida Atlantica. Meet the cariocas at their best. Then take a plunge in the sea and dry out on the beautiful sand while taking in the view of one of the most beautiful places on this planet.

This was the main strip of beach in the Copacabana section of Rio. I stayed in an apt off Copacabana ave but walked the few blocks to Avenida Atlantica to where all the action was. From the beach volleyball, to the street vendors, to the humongous sand castles being erected during the daytime to the moonlit walks on the beach,... More

Good place to walk around, exercise yourself and get a caipirinha. Sometimes you can get good music and food as well, but you need to select well the spot. Try to be in Leme (in the left side of the beach), it´s more calm there. There´s a lot of beggars

I stayed at a hotel on Avenida Atlantica and I loved staying in the area. When my wife and I stayed there we really enjoyed walking up and down the beach and then one street up from Avenida Atlantica there are tons of local restaurants and shops that we enjoyed also walking down.

This Avenida Atlântica is very attractive to walk and watch on the left the copacabana beach which is kilometers long, and you can see locals playing different sports including futebal. Many cyclists, joggers, street vendors,and many kiosks selling drinks and food overpriced. Another place to be careful, because of many thiefs. I walked from Ipanema beach to Copacabana beach and...

This is the main road between Copacabana and the beginning of the city. There are many food kiosks and other vendors selling things. The concierge in my hotel warned me specifically not to wear any expensive jewelry and to stay off my phone and be aware of my surroundings. I didn't have any problems. Also sewer gas, so yeah, there's... More

This is the epitome of Rio lifestyle. a must see and must-enjoy. Try to walk the entire avenida on a sunny afternoon. Sunday is great, because half the road is closed and roamed by pedestrians and there is a lot of street music!
