Copacabana Beach

Copacabana Beach is where residents and visitors from all over the world have a chance to mingle. You will see families with small children, elderly citizens, the young and beautiful, rich and poor sharing the same beach strip.

The sand bank is narrower at both ends of the beach, and some spots in the center are very wide. There are beach kiosks every 50 yards or so. Stop whenever you want for a beer, coconut, or even a quick snack. There is even a gay kiosk (near Copacabana Palace) where the owners frequently tend bar in drag. Rio welcomes people of all persuasions. Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com. All rights reserved. Todos os direitos reservados.

If you are not the active kind you can always stop and watch. Locals also engage in matches of futevoley where you are not allowed to touch the ball with your hands. Seeing is believing.
Copacabana Beach offers a bit more than sand and sports-oriented activities. All you have to do is cross the street to explore the cafes, restaurants and nightclubs. Some of them are legendary, like Help Disco in Posto 5 and Boite Holiday - the only go-go bar in Rio with an ocean view. And then there are travel agencies, jewelers, car rental agencies, and excellent hotels. Take a day or two to explore all possibilities. Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com. All rights reserved.
