Top ways to experience Copacabana Beach
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
How to get there

One of the most amazing places to visit. White sand calm water and attractive beach goers plus the removal of the scammers makes things relaxing. One of many beaches to see.

My preferred beach in Rio
May 2021
Due top the curve, a lovely view from wherever you are on the beach. Different kind of sports, always something to see. Walked it at least daily during my stay. About 3.7 km long.

Rio de Janeiro is wonderful, the weather is very nice and warm, but with a lot of wind. the beaches are beautiful and the water is very cold and the food is very good. I highly recommend drinking coconut water from there, it is very cold and cheap.

Beautiful

Beautiful off white sand. Nice deep sand. The sand is soft and the beach is wide. It would be a better beach if the sand was sifted for the garbage left behind by people. Must go and see this wonderful beach.

Beautiful beach

I didn’t have any issues while I visited. Yes you will be constantly bombarded with people trying to sell you things . But they will walk away after you no a few several times. The water is spotless though . Just watch out for that rip tide

Not just valuables, our clothes got stolen here too!
Jan 2021
We were aware that theft was a problem at Copacabana beach before going. We decided to go anyway because it is a beautiful beach and it would have seemed like a shame to miss it while in Rio.

Our strategy was to bring only things that wouldn't be worth stealing. That is, the camera, phone, etc stayed at home or went into a waterproof pouch along with a few Reals so that they could go into the water with us.

Unfortunately, we found that even non-valuable things are stolen here. Our (cheap) shirts, shoes, etc went missing alongside disposable water bottles and beer.

Somewhere, somebody is drinking my beer while wearing my shirt and my girlfriend's skirt. We ended up having to to go shoeless and nearly naked to the equivalent of a dollar store so that we could buy cheap coverings and shoes to get home.

Copacabana beach.
Feb 2021 • Family
Trash!!! Full of bad apples preying on tourists. Saw 10 groups of boys mugging people. We were only there for 1 hour. Tourist watch you back. Go somewhere else. The beach and location has its beauty but not worth the risk. Please keep your eyes open while there!!!! Cops are useless. By the way I Brazilian!! And I was shocked to see such crimes happening at a very sought out tourist place. You have been warned.

It has to be done ! But its not what Rio is about !
Dec 2020
Copacabana is grossly over priced, not as safe as most of Brazil and anyway is nothing special. Go because you must, You are only going to see tourists, Not the gorgeous locals, but Visit Barra, Recreio £15 in a uber, Angra, The waterfalls or Buzios if you can ! Trust me I live here and am English !
