The good about Leblon beach is the family atmosphere it has. It is the end of a long cost-line about 2-3 km. the traffic is not so... More

Just to the right of Ipanmena, this beach is very clean and well kept. Its somewhat more of a calmer side of Rio, so if you like that like we did, you will enjoy it here as well

This is another of the beaches that make up the Copacabana area. Again, it gets crowded, but it's good walking around here.

Lebanon is one of the more upscale areas of Rio, so the beach here reflects that. Worth the walk on a nice day.

It is at the south end of popular beaches in Rio with great views of Two Brothers Mountains, a hillside favela, islets, fort, and, of course, people. This is a great place to be for beachgoers.

The Leblon Beach is the best beach in Rio! The place to see and be seen with a cool and young crowd! Go on "Posto 10 or 11", which are the best locations. In addition, that are free chairs and umbrella for MasterCard Platinum customers on these spots!

Much quieter than its busy neighbour beaches, but no less beautiful. Good place to escape the crowds and relax, run or swim.

This is a nice, calm beach. People walk their dogs in the early morning and the atmosphere is relaxed. There are people surfing, jogging or playing beach volleyball. It was too cold to swim when we were there, but it was a nice place to just sit and relax.

Wide open spaces and huge waves make this a lovely beach. Really enjoyed just going for a stroll on the edge of the sea, feeling the water lapping my feet. It is also a great place to people watch. Joggers, skate boarders, cyclists and happy people just out walking. Loved it here.

Neighborhood Profile
Leblon
In addition to being one of the most upscale neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming, elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some places open all night). One of the best places to visit is the beach, located under the impressive “Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a pleasant place to relax and admire the local beauty.
