Photo by Silviano for ipanema.com.  All rights reserved.  Todos os direitos reservados.This is what Ipanema Beach looks like at a spot locals refer to as Country. We are between streets Anibal de Mendonça and Henrique Dumont (see map). Half of this block is taken by Ipanema's Country Club, with excellent tennis courts, pool, Sunday brunch, etc.

There's a sand dune across from the club, but the main reference point is the line coconut trees - they are the tallest in Ipanema. On the weekends there's always a massage stand set under the shade of the trees.

A funny story: not everyone is eligible to become a member of the Country Club. Before you are approved, your name is displayed on a billboard. Members have the right to give you a black ball. Three black balls, and you're out! Imagine the devastating effects this had on the life of socialite wannabes who had the mistaken notion that they were Country material. Don't ask us for names, please.
