“Beatiful Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you are in Rio and have a chance, watch the sunset from this place. Probably one of my favorite spots in Rio, though sometimes and weekends can get too crowded.

“Clap for the sunset!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Arporador is a beach, but there's also a big rock jutting out into the water there, where people gather to watch the nightly sunset. It can get crowded (we were there on a Rio holiday) so arrive early for a good spot. But any place that provides applause for a sunset is tops in my book - and it was applause-worthy. Probably the second-best place to view the sunset (after Sugar Loaf.)

“Arpoador Beach, Diabo Beach and the Rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The beach of Arpoador itself is a narrow strip on the East side of Ipanema. The beach changes names at cross-street Rua Francisco Otaviano. The rocks at the end of the beach offer a priviledged overlook to the beachs of Arpoador, Ipanema and Leblon on one side, and a strip of Copacabana Beach on the other. Diabo Beach is small and the rough waters are good for surfing, but it can be treacherous if you are not familiar with the undertow.

“Top of Ipanema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

THis is the top end of Ipanema before you come to the Rocks and just around the corner is Copacabana - to be perfectly honest you wouldnt know this was a separate beach - just a continuation of Ipanema!! Would be a perfect place to watch the sunset!!!
