The watch the sunset from Arpoador is a tradition in Rio. The beach is also a good place to surf and very calm during the week. You can see Ipanema beach from one side and Copacabana beach from the other. It is a place to visit and take a break.

Between Ipanema and Copacabana beaches which makes it a little quieter, if there is a Northerly wind blowing, this beach will be better protected.

It is the far right side of Ipanema Beach, its small, and sort of separate from the rest of the beach. It gets its name from the Arpoador rock that is there and divides the beaches.

stayed here and a really nice location between the 2 main beaches in Rio. Busy enough without the bustle and hustle, a great option to decide whether to stay put, go left or go right ;) can just stay put and relax.......

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
