This area is great! Very artsy, the beach almost looks different after the curve of Leblon. Loved going here and seeing the difference of street vendors. Board walk is lined with cafes and restaurants! Make sure to have a coconut while walking along the beach!

I like this beach more than Ipanema or Copacabana Beach, it's in more affluent area and less crowded, and with less vendors nearby. I personally prefer quieter place, and the view is just as spectacular.

Sand is great, and the water is not so wavy as Ipanema or Copacabana. You have a shopping mall two blocks away in case you need to buy something.

Situated right after Ipanema beach, it is just as beautiful as Ipanema, but perhaps a little quieter if you want it a little less crazy Han ipanema

In addition to being one of the most upscale
neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming,
elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the
most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along
with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some
places open all night). One of the best places to
visit is the beach, located under the impressive
“Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a
