    The beach more frequented by Cariocas. Less touristy than Copacabana.

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

    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 ;)

    The nicer of the two main beaches. Less tourists than Copa, and way better scenery (both physical location and people).

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Don't bring anything: beach vendors sell suits, food, beer, towels, lotion and more; chairs & umbrellas provided.
