Kiosks on beach are very small and does not offer much food or drink. Think it is more appropriate for locals.

A most wonderful beach but be warned the sea in Rio is cold. What's more they don't sell Agua de coco when the temperature is less than 25 degrees

nice beach for people who enjoy playing all kind of sports that involve a ball, with nice bars around it. The send and the beach in general is better than Copacabana.

Didn’t go during the best weather but there were plenty of surfers riding the waves and plenty of places to stop for refreshments and shelter.

Ipanema was probably the best area to walk around, and best for restaurants and the beach. Could get crowded on weekends but we were off season and loved it.

The nicest beaches I have ever been to. The water is clear, even though it's quite big waves. The sand is beautiful and not hot under your feet. The beaches are so clean and just wonderful for all ages. The only thing I would say...More
