“Ipanema still has something special that Leblon has not got”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

I do not if it is because of the legendary song the Girl from Ipanema, but for sure the Ipanema beach is a better destination that the Leblon one. Let's put it this way in terms of the beaches of the Zona Sul of Rio, the Ipanema beach is the real thing in terms of charm, beautiful people, and overall atmosphere!

“Family friendly....”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Theis is where all the yummy mummies bring their children. It has a little more space, more vender noise, but it is possible to relax, the water is cleaner than Copa and you have more space. Best beach in town for children and parents.

“What a winter get away”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Clean cushy beach. Deep sand. The weather was mid 80s, the beach wasn't packed. Everyone was playing: soccer, volleyball, hula~tight rope?? Whatever you can do between two Palms is fine by me. Picturesque!!

“Next to Ipanema”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Similar to Ipanema, but water usually more poluted by the outflow of chanels at both ends. At the endam lots of good restaurants. The name comes from a Frenchman called something Le Blond
