Ipanema is surely one of the best beaches in Brazil and in the world. It has been even appointed by several guides like Lonely Planet and The Guardian. What I like about it, it´s that Real Rio people go to Ipanema...its not just for tourists...

Great beach! true it's a bit dangerous for bathing, but you just have to be careful. The view from Posto 9 is amazing!
I personally have an issue with dirty sticky sand, but in Ipanema sand is amazing...it has this beautiful light beige color and great texture! it feels like salt...really nice beach!
i will definitely come back!
PS: go directly to Posto 9.
Easy way to get there: take Metro, ask for barra express line and get down at Posto 9 Station, you'll be at the right spot.

Not good for swimming, noisy, and very crowded, it is with do doubt one of the most beautiful urban beaches in the world and one of the icons of the city.

Walked here one of our three days in Rio. This beach looked a bit lower key than Copacabana. The water was wonderfully warm, the sand -- fine (and very hot!). On the sidewalk, from time to time there are these great misters that help you cool off -- you just press a button and get showered with cool air mist - super!
Though we did not swim or sunbathe here, we enjoyed this beach very much and would be delighted to return. (Water here was cheaper than on Copacabana -- 3 real instead of 6)
