A little bit quieter that Copacabana though it’s technically the same beach. Always felt safe, lots of helpful taxis and easy to get around. Beach is beautiful but the water is not really good for small children or weak swimmers with very powerful waves and...More

Having been to Rio 4 times, 3 in the last 18 months, I can say that Leme is safe to walk around, and honestly all of Copacobana / Ipanema is fine is you are aware, cautious and not lost in a fantasy. We walk around...More

It is a nice beach with calm waters in the eastern corner of copacabana, limited by cliffs and, becaus of this, not too crowded year round. On of the safest places to go in Rio de Janeiro if one wishes to know its wonderful beaches.

Nice and laid back. Glad we stayed there. There is an craft fair on Sundays half way down Copacabana beach. Things are inexpensive and the money goes straight to the locals... I hope!

At the beginning of Copacabana, or at its end, lies Leme. Its pleasant to walk at The Atlantica Avenue until the very end, Caminho dos Pescadores, a urina smell way, to observe all Copacabana at this best. I recomend Shirley Restaurant for fish.

Locals crowd on this end of Copacabana and the swimming, water and the feeling is better than by the traditional Copacabana. I was touched how caring and sharing these mainly poor people are, it was easy to get in contact with the charming, heartwarming locals,...More

This is the quieter end of the famous beach. Members of our group who ventured to the more populated areas told us they enjoyed this end better. A good number of vendors, but because it is largely frequented by locals, the vendors were not obnoxious.
