Ipanema Beach - Rio de Janeiro

4.0 stars


Ipanema for all

In my opinion, Ipanema beach is one of the best places in Rio. The beach is really beautiful, with blue sea, white and soft sands and coconut palms. In its east side, the Arpoador rock has a panoramic view of the whole beach as well as Copacabana. In the end of the day, a big audience uses to meet there, claping their hands and waiting for an amazing spectacle: the sunset in the beach and Dois Irmaos hills. In the west side, you will have Leblon beach, from where you can also have a great view of Ipanema (mainly if you go to the Leblon belvedere). However, Ipanema is a point of different tribes and considered the trendiest beach of the city. Personally, the most exciting part is Posto 9, where you can find a lovely environment with beautiful people. Another great option to enjoy the place is walking on the sidewalk on Sundays, when the beach avenue is partially closed to the traffic. You will see an amazing atmosphere: people walking or riding bicycles, children playing or even dogs following their owners. [more ]

Ipanema - dangerous water!

Ipanema beach, with its crashing waves, may be beautiful, but bear in mind that its name comes from an Indian word meaning bad water, or dangerous water. If you try and attempt to swim here you´ll understand why!

Don´t even attempt to go in the water when the red flag is up, and exercise caution even if it isn´t. The undertow is extremely strong, and you can find yourself a long way from where you left your clothes and towel. Also - make sure that your bikini/trunks are securely fastened; as you battle to come surface from underneath one of the mighty waves, it can be hard to emerge with your dignity intact! [more ]
