“Between Ipanema and Copacabana”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great view on Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, not that many people which is good, worth climbing up the rock to make some great pictures

“Almost Copacabana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The last small area of beach, before you hit the rocky outcrop separating Copacabana and Ipanema.
This is a continuation of Ipanema and Leblon beaches with little distinction between where one ends and the other one starts !
Very nice with its own 'Arpoador Hotel and restaurant on the promenade.

“escaped to Latin America”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Good beach for surfers and great for watching the sunset over Vidigal from up on the rocks. No good for swimming as the surfers are there in droves.

“The Best Sunset in Rio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is the best beach to watch the sun go down in Rio. Grab a coconut water or a beer form one of the several vendors in the area, walk to the arpoador rock, sit down and take it all in. Again, careful with valuables. I never had a problem in Rio because when I go i dont wear jewerly, cameras are putting away...
