Came round the corner from the tranquility of Copacabana to find the waves beating up the beach at Ipanema - spectacular with the scenery behind.

Brilliant spot to watch the sunset in Rio. Incredible views. There is a great atmosphere. You are never far from a 'caipirinha'! Only downside is that it was quite crowded; we visited during Carnaval, so I'm sure it was a bit more busy that usual....More

Beautiful beach with usually higher surf than Copacabana, but not as wide. Gorgeous beach bodies abound. Dress (less) to impress. Go during the week when it is not as crowded as on the weekends.

When you are visiting Rio one of the synonymous words that come to your mind is Ipanema Beach. Come and visit and take some time in the afternoon when sun goes down .. breathtaking view

Ipanema Beach is a place I will miss! We went early morning and relaxed before most of the vendors were out. It was quiet and relaxing and perfect beach time.
