    The most beautiful beach I ever been. It is surrounded by mountains, that make the place even more special. This beach is probably the most famous in the world, there is a reason for it =)

    Amazingly clean and nice place. Its better to come early in the morning, 8 am and it will be spacious and available. In the evening come to one on the cozy restaurants for good drinks, food and mood)

    Really enjoyed this long walk. Only positive things to say about this world-renowned beach. My only problem is that I am used to swimming and you can rarely be lucky enough to do this here.

    You can rent umbrellas & chairs all along the beach. You can find a drinks and live music along the beach at the beach bars as well.

    A place to find everything and everyone a mixture of locals and visitors. Be aware of your belongings at all times, if you go to Rio is a must bit dint forget the other beaches like ipanema and leblon

    Wake up 1 hour early and go walking on the beach, have a coconut water and do nothing but enjoy the feelings for half an hour.Repeat the steps every morning/evening to try to capture Carioca style :)

    By history you can't miss it. Like any other beach here will make you feel like you don't need anything else. Be careful with thieves specially with little kids.

    for new years eve, agreed with locals, you'll have to come see fireworks here at least once in your life. (preferably from high up on a roof top)

    I am more than a little excited to have become mayor of copacabana beach. I will work with my people to keep it tip top. Try a caipirinha at one of the beach bars.

    In 2006, The Rolling Stones played a free concert at Copacabana for an estimated 1.5 million people (though some say the crowd may have been double that).

    If you can find them, get your sculpture built by two Columbian sculpturists at Sua Caricatura em Escultura.

    Don’t just lay out and get tan, but walk the length and width of the beaches to get a true Brazil travel experience.

    Eat on the beach restaurants, the prices are the same as everywhere else, the food great, one portion will serve two. Back of Copa, not worth checking out.

    For sure not the best beach in the world...most of the days is quite dirty and during the weekends is crowded!

    It's sad to say but the area is very very overcrowded. It's also quite dangerous due to the thieves. So in my opinion Copacabana has lost its luster and is not the place to see or be seen any longer.

    Don't buy stuff from people selling on the beach. There are small street markets across the street and they sell things way cheaper.
