A world famous beach living up to its reputation for fun , frolic, exercises, games, football, Volleyball, racketball, Good for cycling with cycle lanes, good equipment for body building, clean toilets and showers at regular intervals on this ling beach- littered with many kiosks restaurants service varied food & drinks and the Natural Coconuts too.
In the evenings various bands play music and crowds swing to same. Lovely place to buy souvenirs see sand castles and sand art . Something for everyone swimmers, Suntanners, Athletes, Cyclists, Families, Children an all compassing place to pass the day until late at night. Also nice security and policed very regularly.
A must visit beach if visiting Rio. Unforgetful unique one of a kind experience!!

The most famous place in Rio propably. A huge beach, pleasing to the eye but not so safe or suitable fro swimming.

I visited on Good Friday 2018 so being a public holiday it was very busy.
I hired a beach chair and an umbrella and kicked back with a good book.
It's an interesting place to hang out.
There's a never ending supply of vendors trolling the beach selling everything from drinks, ice creams, sunglasses, massages, sun lotion, swim suits...anything you could possibly ever need for a day on the beach.
It's not the most relaxing of places though. Your solitude will be constantly interrupted by those vendors shouting/spruiking about their wares...some even using loud speakers. I still have 'agua, agua, agua' ringing in my ears a few days later ;-)
But seriously, a day spent on Copacabana Beach is a day well spent. A must do in Rio!

After watching all those movies I expected so much more. Touristy and a little overcrowded during the weekend, it is a tourist trap. Impressive for its size but nothing to crow home about.
