Great beach, clean, and has all facilities. Good food, walking or by cycling space, clean and blue water. Very relaxing.

Too many people selling you stuff you cannot relax here and just enjoy the sea and sand. That's sad. Vendors can get annoying approaching you every 2 minutes. It really put us off Copacabana.

This is the essence of Rio. There is the endless sandy beach with chairs and sun shades. Vendors pass by at frequent intervals offering food, drinks, ice cream, hats, bathing costumes, skirts and blouses, havaianas and what not. It is entertainment and folklore. Lots of...More

Copacabana is the best beach for tourists especially close to Leme or Posto 6, cause the is more calm. In Posto 6 you can rent standup paddle for 50 reais for half hour.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
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

We are traveling to Copacabana this weekend coming up and with the whole "Zika" virus going around is it still safe to come and what do we need to be prepared for?

We were there in April. Didn't see or hear concern. No mosquitoes. Nothing.

Hi, I'm planning to go to Rio next February, and wanted to go for a swim in Copacabana beach. Is the beach water safe, I heard mixed things, some say you can catch a virus if you go in the water and Some say its clean. What is it? I think maybe the locals don't catch anything as they are use to it. But tourists can catch things. Not sure?
