No problems of safety here at all. I took my SLR camera in the evening and thought it was like any other city - Miami or LA. You have to be vigilant and sensible, but nobody is actively looking (in my view). Copacobana is different and the feeling there is more risk and isn't a beach I personally like. Ipanema is good, clean and is where there's hardly any kids hanging around.

Lovely beach, great at sunsets..Different personality and less crowded than Copacabana,with less commodities...none of the nicely set public restrooms and far less if at all food kiosks...surfer and beach volley paradise

Ipanema beach was beautiful. People watching doesn't get any better. Water is clear blue. Fun little cafes to have a beer or coffee.

Looking south on Ipanema Beach gives the best view in Rio de Janeiro, in my opinion. There you see the amazing Morro Dois Irmaos.
If you like sunsets Ipanema Beach is a MUST!!
Don't miss out Ipanema Beach!!
!!Security - Be aware on crowded days, espesially in the north end!!
