Lots of shops here but the prices are very high compared to UK prices and nothing special. The t-shirts were designer prices in normal shops. Better to goto saara for similar quality at a third of the price.

We were quite concerned about safety walking around Ipanema, but thankfully there was no need - just make sure you aren't screaming TOURIST and you'll be fine. Lots of little shops & restaurants to wander around, plus street vendors flogging cheap (and quite good) designer...More

This is certainly one of the prettiest beaches in Rio, very clean. They have many food and drink vendors, beach rentals, street artists and some incredible views as well as water and beach sports.
