“Scenic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Really pretty and scenic. Less of a "scene" that Copacabana, but depends on what you like. Very quiet on the week days, and a totally different experience than on the weekends.

“overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

We found Cococabana much nicer. It's an age thing perhaps but Ipanema mostly has young groups of kids swarming around, skateboarding and rather loud. Better cafes and walking area at Cococabana and better views as well.

“WOW the people on the beach are reason to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

This beach was much more entertaining than Copocabana beach. Great views as well as surfers. Be sure to have a fresh coconut and watch them play football on the beach- vollyball with no hands- incredible!
