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.

It's a 9 km long avenue along Copacabana, so it's quite a long walk if you ask me, but we walked from ipanema through copacabana within some hours. There are a lot of vendors running up and down in both beaches and on the avenue, you can buy anything you want immediately. This is nice as you don't have to... More

It's a nice place to walk. Gently people over there. It's seams a safe place. I had a security sensation and I had a good time there.

From Leme to Forte de Copacabana...this nice Avenue gives you the opportunity to enjoy one of the World's most famous Beaches! Here you can enjoy the Carioca Free Spirit plus you'll see visitors for all corners of the Planet. Sit down in one of the beachfront kiosk, sip on a freshly made Caipirinha and enjoy some god live music...aka Utopia!

it is right next to Atlantic Ocean, as its name says. Wonderful. A lot of people take a walk, talk, swim, and chill out. A lot to drink and eat too.

A great place to have a stroll, with lots of shops and restaurants all around. With the Copacabana beach as a backdrop, its a nice place to relax for a while and enjoy the brazilian shopping district.

Walking along Avenida Atlantica is healthy. During the day there are people in beach attire, particularly the weekend. Yes there are skimpy thong bikinis visible on the beach. There are also people focused on their walking or their biking on the bike path. In the late evening there may be some interesting characters to be seen. There are hippy markets... More

Avenida Atlantica stretches for four km from fort to fort, point to point, along Leme and Copacabana beaches. Initially I intended to rate Av Atlantica 4-stars, but when but I challenged myself to come up with better beachfront grand boulevards, I thought about places like Collins Avenue and Pac Coast Highway, and realized Atlantica really deserves five stars. The landward... More

The place is very pretty and well kept. The rooms were attractive and clean. They were wonderful to me both at check-in and out. Concierge was very helpful, especially "Brooklyn". Don't know if the Italian restaurant on premises is actually part of the hotel, but it was terrible. Don't let that stop you from staying here. I was very pleased.... More
