I was a teenager when started to find my crowd in the Ipanema "posto" number nine, or the "Nove" as we use to call. The beach has different crowds. Depending on the location and day time, they are completely different. Find yours by walking and checking out the different people in each spot. Gays, sportsmen, potheads, they are all there. Just need to do some research. And enjoy!

Rent chairs & umbrella from Elias in front of the Rio Country Club. Less crowded part of Ipanema because there is less apartments as the club takes up space. Don’t bring valuable items - we brought an old iPod to take photos and left our phone at home. Best photo op is just before sunset.

A typical atrractive beach. Suitable basically for swimming instead of playing volleyball etc. Nice waves. Cleaner than Copacabana.

I think naming the beaches with beautiful names like Ipanema, not to mention the odd Beach Boys song, makes it a place you really want to see. Not as many waves as there are on the South African coast but lovely for swimming

It’s Ipanema. The most iconic beach in the world and it lives up to its reputation. It’s the beach scene of all beach scenes. All are welcome.
