“Fun beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Ipanema, Leblon and Copacabana all connect. You can walk from one to the other by walking along the beach. There are street vendors and restaurants lining the beach. It was a great place to visit.

“working weekend.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Road closed one way on a sunday, the activites going on, beach volley ball, the hippies selling goods on a sunday. Its all happening on this beach, get there early for a good spot. Great place to people watch and great little cafe bars every 50 metres or so very reasonably prices, a caipirina and burger for 12 Real, what more do you need.

“Amazing sunset!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The sunset at Ipanema beach is just incredible. I was at the very beginning of the beach (direction copacabana) and saw the whole beach, the mountains and the sun going down behind them. Just awesome!

“Great to visit but absolutely and completely packed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Visited on the weekend, was wonderful to sit on the rock between Ipanema and Copacobana and watch the sunset but the beach itself was a little average for me and was absolutely packed.
