“Next stop after Ipanema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

the fact that this is away from the crowd to some extent makes it special, one of the more visited beaches but special attraction is the near by market.

“Zozimo keeps watch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The bronze of Zozimo Barrosa - a well known brazilian author and journalist - keeps watch over Leblon with his jacket slung over his shoulder and a typewriter at his feet. Leblon beach is a beautiful appendage to Ipanema, separated from it by the canal that drains Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas and bracketed by the Mirante do Leblon, a height from which there are commanding views of the beach and a very popular spot with Cariocas taking pictures of each other

“Poluted and durty water.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Stay on the sand and avoid the water. It is poluted. Sewage is discharged directy into the sea and there is no treatment. The water in all beaches in Rio de Janeiro is improper to bathe in.

“Relaxing and safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

See my review of Ipanema Beach, you can walk the long curve of both beaches, divided only by a small inlet. Drink the icy cocunut water on the beach and people watch, then head inland a block or two towalk the tree lined sidewalks for a real middle class lifestyle. Well ok, the rich are here too. You will feel safe. Just keep your eyes open.

“A delightful area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We stayed on three separate occasions in three and a half weeks in Rio on our trip around Brasil. On two of those occasions we stayed in Copacabana and only walked along the front of Leblon, which we thought was in our view nicer than Copacabana, the shops in the road behind were more extensive and the restaurants were better. Possibly Leblon was slightly less 'buzzy' than Cop Beach, but for oldies like us, that would have suited us fine!
