This is one of the ends of the Copacabana Beach. It is very well know in the city as a calm part of Copacabana. One of the biggest attraction is the end of the beach where on the skirt of a stone hill a small walkway serve as a place for fishing and is also one of the best views of the whole Copacabana beach. It can be part of a nice walk in the morning or afternoon.

Leme beach is in front of the Leme neighborhood, not surprisingly. A lovely quiet neighborhood which has become far more safe and desirable (and expensive too unfortunately) since the favela pacification program. Here, the Avenida Atlantica is basically a dead end, traffic turns off onto Princesa Isabel which marks the beginning of Leme, leaving a much quieter environment for beach strolling along the sidewalk. There is a decent sidewalk style restaurant across the street from the beach. By walking out to the area at the base of the big rock which marks the end of Copacabana Beach, there is a great view and if the haze is not so thick a great spot for taking pictures. While the ocean waters may be somewhat cleaner here, I don't go in the water anywhere along Copacabana as it is simply too polluted. Also, I recommend against using the free beach showers. A recent test of the water from those showers showed a high fecal coliform bacteria content.

This is a less advertised beach and it is clean,safe and quiet. Good for a swim and great for a panoramic view of Copacabana beach.
Early in the morning you can hear the soldiers training.

A little bit far from Rio's downtown, this place is special is worth the journey. From there you can see the Cagarra's islands, from another angle, different from the most know from Ipanema Beach!!! Spetacular!!!
