“Top of Ipanema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

THis is the top end of Ipanema before you come to the Rocks and just around the corner is Copacabana - to be perfectly honest you wouldnt know this was a separate beach - just a continuation of Ipanema!! Would be a perfect place to watch the sunset!!!

“Don't go, or else....(I even saw an assasinaton)”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Arpoador is a good beach just to take a quick walk and going back. Whatever you do, dont get into the water or seat at that beach. It is in fact the beach of the people that lives in the Fabellas. I personally saw many robberies in that area, and even I personally saw a guy get shot by the police in the beach beacuse he was stealing. Go to Ipanema instead!!

“Place to see the sunset !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The beach sits between two famous beaches. It is a very good place to see the sunset from. Try to be here around 5:30 pm itself so that you will not miss it. Recommend for all travelers to Rio, especially the romantic couples that love sunset...

“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
