“Don't go, or else....(I even saw an assasinaton)”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Arpoador is a good beach just to take a quick walk and going back. Whatever you do, dont get into the water or seat at that beach. It is in fact the beach of the people that lives in the Fabellas. I personally saw many robberies in that area, and even I personally saw a guy get shot by the police in the beach beacuse he was stealing. Go to Ipanema instead!!

“Place to see the sunset !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The beach sits between two famous beaches. It is a very good place to see the sunset from. Try to be here around 5:30 pm itself so that you will not miss it. Recommend for all travelers to Rio, especially the romantic couples that love sunset...

“Between Ipanema and Copacabana”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great view on Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, not that many people which is good, worth climbing up the rock to make some great pictures

“Almost Copacabana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The last small area of beach, before you hit the rocky outcrop separating Copacabana and Ipanema.
This is a continuation of Ipanema and Leblon beaches with little distinction between where one ends and the other one starts !
Very nice with its own 'Arpoador Hotel and restaurant on the promenade.
