“WOW the people on the beach are reason to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This beach was much more entertaining than Copocabana beach. Great views as well as surfers. Be sure to have a fresh coconut and watch them play football on the beach- vollyball with no hands- incredible!

“Not a VIP beach. And this is definitely an advantage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

A very nice beach. The umbrella and chairs are really cheap if compared to Copagabana standards. (2 chairs and an umbrella for 10 reals). Sometimes you can have a not completely clean water, but Ipanema is definitely the better place in Rio concerning the mix beach-restaurants/pubs. Watch out for water currents.

“Wonderful beach but be careful with the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Wonderful beach with an amazing view. Plenty of nice restaurants nearby. But the waves are more dangerous that it seems. I saw several incidents when people who had been playing ith the waves and started to drawn. Be careful.

“Awesome beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The most beautiful women on the planet. They must live at the gym. How they can wear those tiny bikinis and still look awesome. Don't bring a chair or umbrella. We got 4 chairs and 2 umbrellas for about $10 for the whole day. Plus they come around and bring you drinks from time to time. Just part of the experience. I recommend Posto 9.
