    Gorgeous beach and water. Just be aware of the flags raised for rough water/undertow

    It's a busy beach with a lot of vendors selling various items. You can rent chairs and umbrellas there along with beach cocktails and beer served to your chair! It's not the cleanest but still ok!

    Probably a few notches below Praia de Copacabana. But fine nevertheless. Watch out for your belongings!

    Well it's Ipanema, it's a classic. So beautiful, filled with hot people and great waves. Just be on the lookout for thieves.

    Quick tips on "how not to look like a gringo": don't wear any jewelry, watches and so; never bring your shoes to the beach, stick with your flip flops; never wear plaid or whatever shirt with buttons.

    Great views and relatively safe. Good place for a run along the beach and fresh coconut juice.

    Worth walking the length of the beach when busy and observing the different cultures grouped on the different parts of the beach.

    Go sit on the rocks between Copa and Ipa and watch the sunset. Better with beer...

    If you are a surfer, don't come here looking for waves. This is a place for people to chill out- both in the waves and out. It also has a better landscape and a nicer atmosphere than Copacabana.

    During the weekends if the beach is full of people AVOID to be near the Arpoador. gangs of 20, 30 teenagers attack suddenly to rob and everybody starts to run crazy. be at the Posto 9 It's safer ;)

    One of the best places in this city. Perfect view, water, waves, wind, etc. You can't go to Rio without spend a day in Ipanema beach.

    Great beach, but ask for chair, drink and food prices beforehand so you don't get scammed. Avoid Luis at shack number 100! Most of the shack managers are incredibly nice and friendly though.
