I have been there February 10th. (Rio Carnavals) I liked so much. It was very nice place. Very crowded place also. Only I didn't like calor of the water. But I think normally much better. If you visit in Rio de Janeiro definetely you should visit this beach aswell.

I really enjoyed visiting this iconic beach, there were so many sights to see, people playing volleyball, sand castles or dudes walking on tightropes between palm trees! The beach had a very nice relaxed atmosphere, and at no point did I feel unsafe. I did however enjoy Ipanema / Leblon beach more, because it was less crowded and it had a younger vibe.

We stayed at the Windsor Excelsior so had access to their chairs, towels and umbrellas. The surf was great once you got over the cold water. There is lots of food near and facilities. This is a must do in Rio. If you are driving it is next to impossible to find a parking space on a Sunday. They close part of the main drag for pedestrians, and traffic is re-routed.

Day one at Copa beach was nice, the beach was pretty clean and the water was clear. However, on day two there was significantly more rubbish, including a used hypodermic needle.

As far as beaches go I've never seen more beautiful than Australia, however the sight of people playing soccer and volleyball is pretty cool, but I can't get past seeing that needle and don't feel comfortable walking in the sand again.

It was great to see and I loved the mountians around there but as far as beaches go I would take Miami over Rio any day. Sorry love the people but the people in florida are great too. I did like jogging on the path out front of the beach and stayed at the Marriot right on the beach.
