fantastic scenery, great beach
May 2021
we have been to fabulous " Rio " three times... this City has lots of entry. Next to Ipanema Beach , Leblon Beach is directly connected to it. This is the upper class neighborhood. The beach is wide, always clean ( Rio has special Beach Cleaning Crews, Dressed in a green uniform ) . Come early when it is not too crowded. Since you are close to Ipanema is the Bar/ Restaurant " Garota de Ipanema " where the song " the Girl from Ipanema was composed... check out this fantastic setting... enjoy Rio and Leblon Beach...

A perfect white sandy beach that is more upmarket than Copacabana Beach, however some might find this predominantly gay beach a little over baring. It's without doubt the most packed beach (covid-19) in Rio with literally thousands of men partying.

Good beach and neigborhood. I often stay by Leblon beach when I'm in Rio. The neighborhood and the beach are safe and have a good vibe to it.

Upscale. Amazing beach. Beautiful views. What more could you ask for?!
Feb 2020
My wife and I stayed in Copacabana for eight days but wanted to see the other beaches as well. We took the train to Leblon on a cloudy day, and shopped in Leblon. After shopping we went out to the beach. Since it was cloudy, there were not a lot of people there and we walked the beach and swam a bit too. We had so much fun here. This is the more upscale side of Rio and you can tell by the hotels. The beach is essentially the same as Ipanema but divided by a little creek. We loved Leblon but liked Copacabana the best because it was a bigger beach. But, we would absolutely come back to Leblon!!

Great place

Quieter than Ipanema the beach is esentially the same one. It's a lovely beach that's worthy a visit.

Leblon Beach
Oct 2019
Leblon is next to Ipanema and is regarded as more upscale. This is demonstrated in some of the higher end hotels and bars in the vicinity.

The beach is quieter and less hectic than Copacabana. You will still see people playing football, working out and playing other sports.

We took a leisurely stroll early in the morning when it was subdued but we can see the waves crashing through. I later went for a longer walk across the beach in the late afternoon.

It is worth escaping Copacabana beach and explore both Ipanema and Leblon.

If there is a strong Southerly wind blowing, Loblon will be your best bet. Classy shops and great restaurants close by
