The beach between Postos 8 and 9 in Ipanema is the most colorful I've visited so far in the world. It's the gay beach of Ipanema, marked by a rainbow flag and is bustling with vendors selling everything from sungas to fried cheese, "barbies" in said sungas primping and posing, and party music. It's just a fun atmosphere. The guys you rent chairs and umbrellas from will check in on you periodically if you need anything like a drink. And while there certainly are an abundance of incredibly good-looking, well-sculpted hunks that frequent the beach, it's not intimidating at all because there's also lots of average guys too. The waves can be big and there is a strong current so you must pay attention and be careful when in the water!
