    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.

    Beautiful beach! I like this one even better than Copacabana because the backdrop is more stunning. Come here just before sunset to enjoy it in an amazing shade of light.

    The beach scene is a bustling one year-round on the mile-long stretch of sea and sand that inspired one of the most famous bossa nova ditties of all time. Read more

    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.

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

    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...

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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!!!
