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.

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 a beach with artificial sand. It has been cleaned for the soccer world cup and the olympic games. I find it has lots his personality and looks a little like Ocean Boulevard in Miami now. That being said, the view is great. It is Rio's iconic beach. It is about 5 km long and the skyline is beautiful.... More

We had an apartment on Ipenema beach and walked along the Avenida Atlantica three times. Morning afternoon and evening, its such a lively place with so much going on on the beaches that you can't fail to enjoy it. Stopping on regular intervals for a drink on either the walkway or the beach to take in the atmosphere. Our favorite... More

Magic atmosphere! We arrived late in the evening and just walked a couple of minutes from our Airbnb-apartment to an open bar/restaurant at Avenida Atlantico. There were live samba music and a lot of people hanging out. We had a couple of beer to reasonable price and were just sitting and enjoying the atmosphere. A good start on our 10... More

With its 4 km lenght, from Copacabana to Leme, the Avenida Atlântica is the major seaside avenue in Rio de Janeiro. Great choice of hotels (or residential buildings) restaurants, entertainments and shops (not so many) Nice the wave-patterned pavement.

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.
