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

Leblon is the place to stay on the beach if your travel has time under the sun. The beach is beautiful, not very crowded, unless if it is a sunny weekend, and offer great views for pictures. The sunset is a must.

Enjoy beach and lunch combo. Take some hours at the sand, drink some "Mate" and coconut water. Reserve your self some more hours to have lunch at one of the many bars and restaurants in area.

Leblon has more locals, less tourists so you need to go a few blocks in to find food, but worth it. Beach as good as the better known,but with more space. Worth considering if you don't need to say you went to Copacabana! Underground train...More

We enjoyed this beach toward the end of Ipanema. Less crowded with quite a social vibe. Ended up coming back here a few times despite staying in Ipanema.

A more relaxed and less hectic beach than Copacabana. Great shops and cafes. A lovely place to visit. Shops more upmarket.

Still lots of bars and drinks etc being sold on the beach, but fewer people than copacabana - worth a walk along the coast

The Leblon beach is a continuation of Ipanema beach but tends to be less crowded as its a little further from the hotel areas. The promenade and cycle paths go all the way to the end of the beach , which is fantastic with great...More

Not as crowded as Ipanema beach, Leblon is beautiful! Just observing people exercizing with their bikes or just jogging is worth the visit. The sea can be rough, sometimes.
