One of the worlds most iconic beaches. Beautiful sand, beautiful water and beautiful people. The sheer size of it is a little intimidating, but it was amazing to see all the people playing games on the beach. All along the beach there are great juice...More

I saw some people surfing so this beach is not quite ideal for swimming (if you are not a good swimmer). But the ambient is nice. You can walk from one end to the other in less than an hour, or you can get the...More

Good atmosphere on an iconic beach. But the bars are rather expensive and the beach itself was very dirty!

After walking the beach we entered the naval base at the eastern end. Do not be put off by the symbolic entrance fee. It is worth it. You can get a drink at one of the 3 terraces with a nice view over copacabana. After...More

chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
