Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com.  All rights reserved. Todos os direitos reservados.Ipanema Beach is where the summer happens in Rio. This page is dedicated to showing you why. Get ready for your virtual tan with dozens of original photos, insider's tips, and local gossip.

The Beach Tour sequence starts on the West side of Ipanema Beach, at the border with Leblon (see map). We picked out some favorite spots of the beach to share with you. When you come to Rio in person, you may even run into a familiar face or two. We are walking East, towards Arpoador and Copacabana.

There's much more to do at the beach than just working on your tan. You may join locals on a match of beach soccer, or beach volleyball. Foot-volleyball is a little harder if you're a novice, but you could always try. If you never tried surfing, bodyboarding or skimboarding, you're welcome to watch. The day to see Capoeira is Sunday, when the beach lane is open for pedestrians only. The sports and action series features exciting sequences of photos.

More Pictours of Ipanema highlights like the main street, spots of interest, people, moods, and even pets that help give Ipanema its very special character. Watch children playing at squares, or go the Hippie Fair for Brazilian handicraft, art, and musical instruments, and original souvenirs. To see Ipanema in a party mode, don't miss our Street Carnival festivities with the hilarious Drags from Ipanema.

Ready for more? From the beach it's 10 minutes on foot to Lagoa Park. Go west past the Canal, and you are in Leblon - our charming beach neighbor. And out west after Arpoador it's only another 10 minutes on foot to Copacabana. Learn your way around Ipanema with the Clickable Street Map, and use the hotel map for reviews, rates and free reservations at the best hotels and flats.

If you're looking for action, this is where you start. Enjoy beach sports in Rio's favorite setting - Ipanema Beach! Start on the sand, and choose from beach soccer to volleyball, beach tennis, or foot volleyball. Go on to the sea for great surfing, skimboarding or bodyboarding, bodysurfing, or just swimming.

Joggers, cyclers and skaters rule on the bicycle lane, and along the beach on Sundays. This is the right day to watch an exciting roda de capoeira! And when you get tired from all the activities, grab a cold drink, and go people watching at Cap Ferrat.

Welcome to Rio's favorite neighborhood. Start with the beach tour, and learn what is the right spot for you to hang out. From families with babies, to teens, jocks and beach goddesses, to university students and artists, gays and lesbians, all are welcome. Take your time to watch the dogs on parade, meet the beach people. And, of course, don't miss all the beach sports!

Enjoy a special Sunday at the beach, and leave in time to check out the Hippie Fair. Go on a shopping spree on the main street, starting at Bar 20. Catch your breath watching the children play at the Peace Square, or the plants for sale in the streets. Use the clickable map for orientation.

Rio de Janeiro's Princess of the Sea, Copacabana certainly has something for everyone. You will find everything from landmark art-deco building to strip clubs, from posh hotels along the beach to sex hotels that you pay by the hour, from millionaires living in mansions, to working class families sharing tiny studios.

Add a gorgeous beach where everybody gets together, a main street where you can buy everything you can think of, and you will start to appreciate some of its charm. It will become a permanent love affair when you find about the New Year's festivities, that attract 2 million people from all over the world! Use the clickable map for orientation.

You've already mastered two of Rio's favorite neighborhoods, Ipanema and Copacabana. Now it's time to expand your horizons. Let us introduce you to Ipanema's next door neighbors: Arpoador, Leblon and Lagoa. Another part of the city you cannot miss is Downtown, Rio de Janeiro's historical Centro. Find more details about each area with Citytours & Clickable Street Maps.

Our next spotlight is on Rio's major events. New Year's Eve is when 2 million people get together at Copacabana Beach to celebrate. Proceed to Carnival, the greatest show on earth. Learn about the interesting backstage action, and have a few laughs with the hilarious Drags from Ipanema.
