Top ways to experience Copacabana Beach
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Copacabana
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 draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
How to get there
  • Cantagalo • 10 min walk

Beautiful beach

It is a beautiful beach for relaxing, sunbathing or water sports. Definitely recommended if you are in Rio.

The beach was so much fun. The waves were HUGE and rough, but had so much fun at the beach. Lots of food and drink options.

A bit decadent
Aug. 2021
It is understood that Copacabana was a beautiful destination, but today the whole neighborhood shows a state of decay and neglect.
It is much less beautiful and safe than nearby Ipanema.
The beach becomes extremely dangerous as soon as the sun goes down. I have witnessed a couple of thefts.
To be very careful

Great views but I prefer Leblon or Ipanema Beach

I am not a fan, just to put it simply.... The view is amazing 🥰 but I walked on the beach for 5 minutes and felt like the guys selling stuff were eyeing me as I was road kill.

I got a beer and made the mistake to open it before I paid, he said 15 reais...sure it's cheaper than US but darn. I learned my lesson..always ask the price!

Must do
Jul. 2021
If you are around, of course you should go to this most known beach in the world. I was expected to be disappointed but not at all, great beach, great beach bars, on Sunday all is pedestrian, perfect to have a caipirinha in ocean front view

Truly a Destination Hotel
Jun. 2021
What a fabulous hotel. Virtually everything about our stay was wonderful, from the outstanding customer service to the beautiful facilities and room to the excellent location. The only negative was our dinner at Mee, which fell quite short of one-star expectations. Would absolutely stay here again.

One of the most amazing places to visit. White sand calm water and attractive beach goers plus the removal of the scammers makes things relaxing. One of many beaches to see.

My preferred beach in Rio
May 2021
Due top the curve, a lovely view from wherever you are on the beach. Different kind of sports, always something to see. Walked it at least daily during my stay. About 3.7 km long.

Rio de Janeiro is wonderful, the weather is very nice and warm, but with a lot of wind. the beaches are beautiful and the water is very cold and the food is very good. I highly recommend drinking coconut water from there, it is very cold and cheap.
