Wonderful beach!
Nov. 2021 • Family
Wonderful beach. Light thin sand. Scenery just lovely on both sides. Great for a walk, not to long. A much if you are in RJ, even if just for a quick weekend.

Beats Copacabana 10-1

Ipanema beach is much more beautiful, quiet and safe than Copacabana. The neighborhood is full of beautiful places to walk, eat or have a drink.

Dangerous-do not bring any belongs!
Jan. 2021 • Solo
Definitely not what they see it is. Went there on a January weekend and it was busy! You couldn’t even walk. There was a very dangerous feel to it as people were hawk eying me left and right. 3 kids tried to tackle me and steel my phone. Beach isn’t so clean. I could have went on the wrong time but I definitely would only go to copacabana beach as it is much better if you are staying in that area. LEAVE ALL BELONGINGS IN ROOM.

Boardwalk fun

This is the beach to visit just before sunset if you're lucky enough to get an evening that isn't raining. we had to try on several occasions before we finally saw what all the fuss was about. And yes it's worth it.

Go Becuase you must ! But only once !
Dec. 2020
This is the height of overpriced tourist Brazil, Of course you must go, but dont expect anything other than a tiourist overpriced experience! If you want the real Brazil spend £15 on uber and go to Barra or Recreio, see the real Brazil and get you taxi fare back on the cost of the first 4 Beers ! Also if a weekend you will see the beautiful, young people of legend, which you will not at Ipamena!
