Ipanema Beach is beautiful and, for the most part, clean. The water is cool. However, having stayed on the Copacabana side the routine would be to do Copacabana Beach early in the day and Ipanema after 3, as the sun sets on that side.

Enjoyed spending time on Ipanema beach while in Rio. The beach was pretty clean, though not empty of trash here and there. I thought it was much nicer than Copacabana beach. You can rent beach chairs from small tents on the beach. Beautiful views on a clear sunny day.

Most of the tourists stay in the Copacabana area. Ipanema is filled in Caricoas though you can find a few tourists here and there. Its a great beach and wonderdul for people watching.

Far better beach comlared to touristic and quite dirty copacabana beach. Te promanade behind has good stalls and thebother side of the street is full of nice shops... Still crowded yet if you are in rio center still the best choice for beach combing...

Umbrella and chair make things more bearable at the peak of the days heat. The prices are doubled on weekends vs the weekday. Typically RS10-12 for both chair and umbrella - goes to RS20-25!
