In Rio, the beaches (or rather the people that go to them) mirror the neighborhoods behind them. In Leblon, the beach scene is a bit older, laid-back and family oriented. The beaches in Rio have lifeguard towers with bathrooms called ‘postos’. In Leblon, the beaches...More

we loved Leblon beach, with its thin white sand, blue water and waves, the views of the morros and the small bars and restaurants. We rented some beach chairs and an umbrella at very reasonable prices and spend several hours relaxing in the beach.

Leblon beach is part of the same 3.6 kilometre stretch of sand as Ipanema Beach and Arpoador Beach. Leblon is the beach furtherest west and is separated from Ipanema Beach by the Canal do Jardim de Alah which flows from the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas...More

This area is monumental, high rise modern residential buildings and fancy villas along some side streets. Our tour bus had a short break there. The beach is less crowded, we didn’t swim but the waves were calmer compared to Copacabana beach. We had coconut drinks...More

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
