This is the road that runs alongside the famous beach. Nice cafes surround the beach along the avenue. Plenty of restaurants and hotels. The vendors are friendly.

Beeing here first time almost 30 years ago. Now in March, not so many tourists. The vibe of this beautiful avenue is somewhat decreased. No such exotic spirit as previously. However, there are still the cariocas and people make life. One has to experience it. This is something unique, cannot find anywhere else ...

Every thing was okay until the waiter decided to open the side retractile tend at one side of my table when the rain stopped. I started feeling the water dripping on me. I asked nicely... More

This is the six kilometer road along Copacabana Beach. Along the way there many kiosks selling chilled coconuts and beer. Along the way, you'll see the famous Copacabana Palace Hotel. At the far end of the beach, you can visit the Forte de Copacabana, an obsolete gun emplacement guarding the entrance to the Rio harbor. On Sundays, the traffic is... More

Great to walk and enjoy the beach along the way. City tour busses go along this avenue also. There are expensive restaurants on the city side and small cozy restaurants with live music at night on the beach side.

Copacabana's promenade is definitely worth the full walk from the Forte de Copacabana until Leme! There is a bike path and I highly suggest going by bike, it's beautiful first thing in the morning or any time of day (Just be aware that there isn't a lot of shade along the promenade) The views are beautiful, just take care of...

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
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 draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
