Lots to see and do on this beach. It is really super lively 24/7. You will like it and you can see the differences with Copacabana easily.

The two beaches we needed to see while in Rio was the Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches. Not realizing they were right next to each other made it easy to walk to both. There are even great sand art along the way.

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
