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

    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).

    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.

    Enjoy one day to remember at Ipanema Beach. Chill out on the beach on a hot day, dive in the blue ocean and have yourself a beer!

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    Bring a towel, get a chair, order a caipirinha from the bar, stay for the sunset.

    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!!!
