  • The Most Interesting Man in the World

    I once knew a tall and tan girl from here who strode like a samba. Unfortunately, we drifted apart. Later, I told a talented Brazilian guitarist about her. I wonder what happened to either of them.

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

    Look out after your belongings. It's pretty common to get mugged in here.

    I like it!

  • Willian P.

    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.

    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.

  • Alberto P.

    Probably the best promenade in Rio

  • Beatriz V.

    The view is amazing, rent chairs, it is not so expensive

    Come for the views, the sandy beach or the restaurants and bars but NOT for swimming, it is too dirty! Not coming back! Avoid.

    Best place in the world!

    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.

  • JavierRaudel A.

    This is the best beach in Rio de Janeiro. Be aware not to ring jewelry or lots o valuable things. They are a lot of pick pocketers. Best sport in front of Cesar park hotel

  • jessica m. h.

    knock back a couple caipirinhas (cachaça (sugar cane liquor), fresh lime juice, and sugar)

  • Hadrien v.

    Better than copacabana

    Less crowded (and more expensive) than the more worldwide-famous Copacabana, but providing the same carioca flair. The waves tend to be stronger, too - keep an eye out for red warning flags.

    Run this beach in the morning. This beach is also more suitable for surfing.

    Rocky patch on the east side of the beach is the best at sunset!

    Krishna Dase · July 8, 2014

    good for hanging and cleaner than copacabana

    The beach vendors are really helpful and cool...just ask for a chair or sun lounger and you pay when you leave...much more trusting than in the UK!!!

    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 ;)

    Get here early (the sun rises at 5:30) and watch how the city changes color because of the sun!
