Ipanema Beach is one of Rio's best attractions..whether it is a lazy beach day on the sugar white sand and the warm Brasilian sunshine or just an evening stroll to the rocks for a magnificent sunset it just doesn't get any better.

It is a refuge between Copacabana and Ipanema beach. the most beautiful sunset in town. It can be very crowded on weekends so prefer to go during the week.

This is probably the main sunset spot people come to in Rio. There is a good reason for that as sunset here is absolutely spectacular. I highly recommend doing it at least once while in Rio, the beach is pretty good as well.

all the young folks gather to watch the sunset. food and drink vendors on the rocks with you. one night i was there, saxophonist played the whole time. lots of friendly stray cats. loved the vibe, went back a second time.

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
