Avenida Atlantica, with the iconic wavy sidewalk mosaic of Roberto Burle Marx, is ideal for strolling along Copacabana Beach. It is lined with beachside kiosks offering refreshments such as a chilled coconut, and at the far end is a quaint area where fishermen bring their fresh catch ashore.

A great seaside promenade, lined along the beach with small bars that sell drinks at reasonable prices. On the other side, many restaurants, and some are pretty good.

Take a nice stroll on the famous side walk and its wavy Portuguese stone pattern. Good for your health and your eye-sight! Amazing view over the Sugar Loaf, Niteroi and southern beaches across the Guanabara bay.
