There are 6 kms of beach with white sand and sea that deserves care for swimming. Its waves are usually dangerous not by its strength or size but by the seabed that is irregular. Child care is required. In the afternoon, around 6 hours between...More

Being American.. we giggled at the dental floss bathing suits. We are much too modest to wear such clothing. It was a shocker for my kids. We love the Coconut waters and drank them at every opportunity.

Best time to visit is early in morning before hordes of locals and tourists visit. A walk, a run a cycle on the beach is great fun.

Nice beach. Obviously famous and I can’t get the song out of my head now, luckily it’s a great song. We stayed at Ipanema which in my opinion is a much nicer beach. But this is still lovely.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful

We felt very safe on Copacabana beach! We were with our 11 year old daughter and spent 4 days on the beach and had zero problems. Same cautions as nearly every big city....

U recommended you go to breakfast @ Copacabana Palace if you book in advance is very busy there! New year go to Barra da Tijuca is more safe and less busy there!!! Enjoy your holiday! 🙏😘☀️
