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

This is a lovely beach with great views of the mountains and lots of interesting people and activities to watch.
Lots to do, amazing views, people, beach volley ball, very clean, lots to see and the people are just wonderful. You cam also take beautiful pictures and the weather was just wonderful and a cool sea breeze.

lots of activities- beach volley ball, very clean, nice market near by. very central and short walk to good bars in Lappa
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.
