I happily spend hours sitting by the beach watching the beach football, the volleyball, the surfers and all the life only the boardwalk. There are lots of places to eat and drink at very reasonable prices. Great by day, but be careful after dark

Other beaches in Rio are also nice, but the Copacabana beach is surely the most famous. Locals play football or cards at the beach. As the beach is rather large, even with many visitors it still doesn’t seem to full

When I was in Rio I stayed in Copacabana. The beach is beautiful, there’s a lot of restaurants and places to go.

You cannot come to Rio and not go to Copacabana. We enjoy walking in the morning, eating off the many street vendors and seeing the vendor fair at night.

I am not a beach expert: after Indian beaches this one appears to be very good, nice and clean. Hopelessly overcrowded on weekends and holidays. Calm and beautiful on workdays. You have to visit it. Even if just to unlock the achievement, it's the most...More

We have been disappointed on occasions when visiting so called wonderful beaches but this one ticks all the boxes. Over 2 miles of soft sand with numerous bars - they haggle for your custom but this is Rio.

Copacabana is an enormous beach of beautiful soft white sand. Although the sea is cool the beach is wide and full of masses of local people. All kinds of people are here. The promenade is populated with lots of bars and snack bars and some...More

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

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! 🙏😘☀️

Hello! The water is safe from a health perspective, but be aware that the sea is rough, with strong waves and tides. It gets deep abruptly, so you have to be alert. Enjoy also a nice walk on the famous sidewalk, have a... More
