Its a nice beach, lots of waves and cold water. Definitely preferred Copacabana as it was quieter and less vendors.

We spent a day on this beach and it was a lot cleaner and quieter than Copacabana. Sunset here was also a real treat with locals playing kick-ball as the sky turns pink. Great place to stay around as well.

loved spending time on both Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. Ipanema seems to have more locals, vendors speak less English, fewer vendors, more people playing sports, gay friendly zone. great place to people watch and try the snacks from the vendors.

Ipanema is better and safer area of Rio, than Copacabana. Many nice cafes. Beautiful girls in bikini walking for a number of blocks.

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

A lot of mention about the criminals, but what about vendors? Are you mostly left alone, or bothered every few minutes by people walking by selling trinkets.

Hello. About crime, it's everywhere specially on big cities where you have a great difference between the rich and the poor. Keep an eye on the beach and when you see a lot of people leaving may be is the time to pack up... More
