Nice calm beach with fewer tourists than the other areas. The beach is all the way at the opposite end of Copacabana so take a bus there!

The water is not as clean as feather up on Ipanema. It does offer a great view of Ipanema so we would recommend a visit!

Leblanc beach merges into Ipanema beach. Absolutely gorgeous and maybe slightly quieter than Ipanema but just as good.

This beach is next to Ipenema (same stretch) and equally beautiful with superb views. Populated with locals.

Beautiful beach, I prefer it to the other beaches along this coast. Make sure you pop into Azur for a drink. A must visit

Although well known by locals, located at the most expensive neighbourhood in the country, this beach is not as frequently visited by tourists as Copacabana or Ipanema.

Leblon beach is a beautiful but expensive place to hang out. Beside Leblon beach, there is Rocinha Favela which is very nearby. Rocinha Favela even has a metro station called Sao Conrado.

this beach is very popular because people do paragliding and other sports, waves are very rough so be mindful and there are no palm trees so is very hot, you need an umbrella to have some shade and lots of sunscree and a good hat

Leblon's beach shares the same shore with Ipanema but is alot less crowded. It's mainly a local's beach. The sand coast is quite small, and there is a good volume of waves. There are usually people playing: beach-voley, futvoley, and beachtennis besides doing exercise. Leblon is one of the trendiest neighborhood in town, after the beach you can go for... More
